The word ”fibromyalgia” sounds terrifying, and is only made scarier by how common its use has become. In spite of its ubiquity, however, fibromyalgia remains a poorly-understood topic among the general public.
The bad news? The pain of fibromyalgia can be unbearable, and can be so far-reaching that it seems impossible to overcome. The good news is that your Yellowstone National Park chiropractor can get you on the path to a pain-free lifestyle.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Appropriately termed a pain disorder, fibromyalgia manifests itself in pain spread throughout the musculoskeletal system, which ranges from mild to severe, and usually goes hand-in-hand with at least one of the following: Sleeping problems; fatigue; memory issues; and mood swings.
The difficult thing about fibromyalgia, at least what we understand about it, is that it doesn’t always cause pain in and of itself. Often, fibromyalgia amplifies the pain you feel after a traumatic incident, such as a car accident, operation, illness or psychological breakdown, by negatively impacting how your brain interprets pain signals.
Females, for reasons researchers don’t yet understand, are significantly more likely to exhibit symptoms of fibromyalgia than males.
