Fibromyalgia is a medical condition that is characterized by chronic widespread pain and an increased pain response to pressure. It is a very complex chronic disease, and the symptoms take both a mental and physical toll on patients. Chiropractic can help relieve some of the painful symptoms.
A disease of the central nervous system, fibromyalgia causes debilitating pain throughout the body. Sufferers experience a number of symptoms, including headaches, restless leg syndrome, painful cramps, trouble sleeping, and cognitive and memory problems. Patients more commonly suffer from chronic body pain, which is because fibromyalgia causes the central nervous system to be extremely sensitive to pain impulses from the sensory organs in the body. Tingling and numbness are also very common symptoms because this disease affects the central nervous system. The constant pain also causes the muscles to become very tight.
Fibromyalgia symptoms usually present themselves in early adulthood, and there are many lifestyle changes that can be made to eliminate unwanted or unwarranted stress.
