Constant, all over body pain! We know what fibromyalgia is not, but we know very little about what it actually is!
Symptoms include: diffuse pain throughout the body, intense fatigue coupled with insomnia, recurring headaches, anxiety, digestive and circulatory disorders, depression, among others.
Fibromyalgia mainly affects women; it is often diagnosed after other diseases have been excluded.
There is no cure, the treatment includes antiepileptic drugs, antidepressants, muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory medication.
TCM provides an effective therapeutic option. In most cases it reduces pain and provides a better quality of life without side effects.
Acupuncture treatment involves inserting fine needles into strategic points of the body. The needles are carefully inserted, they give a sense of pressure, not of pricking.
This treatment improves energy flow, it reduces energy blocks and pain.
The frequency of treatment is determined by the doctor according to patient requirements.
