One of the most common chronic pain disorders, fibromyalgia affects more than five million people in this country. It is also the second most common condition affecting the bones and muscles. Unfortunately, it’s also quite frequently misdiagnosed and misunderstood. Highlighted by classic symptoms like muscle and joint pain, fibromyalgia is also accompanied by fatigue. There is no cure at this time for this condition; however, there are ways you can manage your symptoms in everyday life.
Fibromyalgia is an excruciating condition that disproportionately targets women. It can be difficult to treat, in part due to the challenge of diagnosis and determining root cause. However, according to a recent study, acupuncture is effective in reducing fibromyalgia pain.
