Let’s dive into the question, “What does fibromyalgia feel like?” It’s a complicated diagnosis with a variety of symptoms that can be difficult to pin down. But when you break down the word “fibromyalgia.”
It becomes clear that it’s a pain in every fiber of your being. For some, the pain comes in the form of headaches and neck pain, while for others, it’s trigger points across the body. Fibromyalgia can also be accompanied by anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, and other symptoms.
We explore how the spine and body being in a locked, stressed, misaligned state can contribute to fibromyalgia and offer tips and tricks for improving your health and quality of life.
- Tingling or shooting pain all over the body?
- Fatigue and tiredness?
- Trouble with sleeping or trouble waking up in the morning?
- Problems with thinking, memory, and concentration?
- Migraine Headaches?
These are a few symptoms of fibromyalgia, and they can be painful if left untreated. Many are affected throughout the world, and very few have heard of upper cervical. But what does fibromyalgia feel like, exactly? And how can it be managed?
“Fibromyalgia” comes from two words: “myalgia,” which means pain in a muscle, and “fibro,” which refers to fibers. So, fibromyalgia is a pain in every fiber of your being. For some people, the pain is localized to the head and neck area. Others experience trigger point pain across their bodies. In the early years of diagnosis, patients had to have a certain number of trigger points of pain in their shoulders and hips, but this requirement has since been removed.
The spine and the body can become in a locked, stressed, misaligned state; it can lead to trigger points across the shoulders. This is often due to one shoulder riding higher than the other or carrying weight unequally. This can lead to pain and discomfort that can be difficult to manage.
Living with fibromyalgia can be challenging and frustrating, but there are ways that can help alleviate the symptoms. At the Revive Upper Cervical clinic, we work with fibromyalgia patients to help them navigate their condition and find ways to get to the root cause not just treat the symptoms.
