Do you suffer from Fibromyalgia? Are you not sure? Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that leads to body wide pain and tenderness in the joints. It affect10% of all people within the United States, and it most commonly affects women from the ages of 20 – 50. Here’s a list of symptoms to watch for:
- Chronic Muscle Pain, muscle spasms, or tightness
- Fatigue or severe decreased energy
- Insomnia or tired feeling when you wake
- Stiffness when you wake
- Poor memory or concentration
- Migraine Headaches
- Abdominal Pain, bloating, Nausea
- Facial Tenderness
- Anxiety or Depression
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
No one is quite sure what the exact cause of Fibromyalgia is, but it is believed the leading cause is a traumatic neck injury. That means that it most commonly affects those who have suffered an event that led to a concussion or whiplash.
Basically, though the pain may not appear for months or even years after the mild traumatic brain injury, it occurs because of an irritation to the nerves in the brain stem. Upper Cervical Care reverses this affect by aligning the upper vertebra of the spine, which restores proper alignment to the head and spine and releases pressure from the nerves that control the muscles.
Not every person who suffers from Fibromyalgia can trace their pain back to a car accident, fall, or other type of injury that led to a head trauma. But the cause can be determined by an upper cervical examination using a Laser-aligned Radiography and Digital Infrared Imaging.
Whether you suffered a mild traumatic brain injury or not, if you suffer from any of the above symptoms, or you think you might have Fibromyalgia, you do not need to continue suffering.
