Fibromyalgia is an idiopathic diagnosis, meaning the medical community doesn’t know why this happens to the body. Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender points or trigger points. Drug therapy is often used to help with the pain and well known side effects can occur like addiction, dizziness, fatigue and constipation. What we see in our Austin Acupuncture office is case after case of bodies under stress. Whether the stress comes from food intolerance’s or immune challenges like parasites or a viral infection, the body is compromised by these burdens. In this state physiological function declines and Qi and Blood flow stagnate thus we see pain and often fatigue.
Through our unique approach of identifying these stressors and others on the body and moving/strengthening your Qi and Blood flow, we help our Austin Acupuncture patients overcome syndromes like Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. If you, a loved one, neighbor or co-worker suffer with Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue please start the healing process today and call my office for the help you deserve.
