Fibromyalgia is a condition involving widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, mood disorders and sleep disturbance without any known cause. Typically, symptoms are usually treated individually. In Functional Medicine we look at the root cause of problems and focus on bringing the body back into a healthier state.
In Functional Medicine, we understand that pain is a symptom, and it’s trying to tell us something. Pain usually tells us that there is likely inflammation going on in your body, and it is commonly linked to fatigue and sleep issues as well. Once you address the inflammation in your body a lot can change in the way of how you feel.
Fibromyalgia can cause significant pain that can seriously reduce one’s quality of life. If you’re living with fibromyalgia, it can be stressful, but you don’t have to go through it alone.
