Fibromyalgia Q & A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic health condition that causes widespread pain all over your body. It can negatively affect everyday functioning, and make staying active a challenge. 

The cause of fibromyalgia isn’t known, but certain treatments can help manage and relieve your pain.

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

If you have fibromyalgia, you might experience one or more of the following signs or symptoms of the disease:

  • Widespread pain and stiffness

  • Sleeping problems

  • Fatigue

  • Emotional or mental distress

  • Problems paying attention

  • Depression or anxiety

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Numbness or tingling in your feet or hands

  • Jaw or face pain

  • Digestive issues

Fibromyalgia can be debilitating, but you don’t have to suffer through it or take addictive pain medicines. If widespread pain lasts more than a few days or is severe, see the expert team at Complete Wellness for an evaluation. 

Risk factors for fibromyalgia include being a woman, having a family history of the disease, and having arthritis. 

How is fibromyalgia diagnosed?

To diagnose fibromyalgia, your Complete Wellness specialist reviews your medical history and symptoms. They might recommend a blood test to rule out similar medical conditions, but there’s no lab test available to confirm a fibromyalgia diagnosis.

What is the treatment for fibromyalgia?

To help manage or treat pain caused by fibromyalgia, your chiropractic specialist might recommend:

  • Brain tapping - Brain tapping, or forced meditation, helps relax your entire body. It relieves stress, improves sleeping problems, and boosts energy levels.

  • Dietary supplements - Taking dietary supplements can optimize your overall health and wellness, improve joint health, and reduce your risk of nutritional deficiencies, injuries, and pain.

  • Weight loss - Losing weight can relieve added stress on your joints, reduce widespread pain, and help you feel better overall. Complete Wellness offers a five-week medical weight loss program with proven success.

  • Chiropractic adjustments - Adjusting your spine into proper alignment, your Complete Wellness provider uses controlled pressure to correct spinal issues associated with widespread musculoskeletal pain.

  • Massage therapy - Massage therapy uses manual pressure to relieve chronic pain, tension, and stress. It enhances healing and helps prevent future pain associated with fibromyalgia.
