The most prevalent symptom of fibromyalgia is PAIN.
The very word fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles and fibrous connective tissues.
Individuals with fibromyalgia may also experience other symptoms including:
- Morning stiffness
- Poor sleep or sleep disorders
- Chronic headaches
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Restless leg syndrome
- Menstrual irregularities
- Muscle twitches and/or muscle weakness
Joint and soft tissue manipulation is often very helpful in relieving the aches and pains of fibromyalgia and related conditions.
Although researchers are still a long way from finding a “cure” for fibromyalgia, chiropractic care is usually very successful in the effective management of this condition.
