Suffering with the chronic pain and debilitating symptoms associated with fibromyalgia?
Find out more about a gentle treatment designed to improve the way your body responds to pain
As many as 1 in 20 Australians suffer from Fibromyalgia. It’s sometimes known as the invisible disease because despite appearing fine, sufferers report a wide range of painful and debilitating symptoms that significantly impact their lives. Usual treatment options include exercise, massage, diet changes, counselling, painkillers and antidepressants.
And whilst painkillers and anti-depressants may help short term, they have ongoing side-effects that may affect fibromyalgia sufferers in other ways.
The range of Fibromyalgia symptoms can include:
- Chronic pain
- Increased sensitivity to pain
- Extreme fatigue
- Brain fog
- Problems with sleep
- Widespread muscle pain and tenderness
- Sensitivity to heat, light, cold or smell
- Hormonal problems
- Weight gain
As a Fibromyalgia sufferer, because of the extreme sensitivity and ongoing chronic pain you suffer, you may be afraid that trying a different treatment that may cause you more pain.
