Resulting in enhancing overall comfort and making it more likely for patients to relax into a more restorative sleep.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition of widespread pain and profound fatigue. Affecting the four quadrants of the body, with pain tending to be felt as diffuse aching or burning, often described as head to toe, or on right and left sides, as well as above and below the waist.
Caused by a decrease in blood flow to pituitary gland in the brain, it restricts blood flow which consequently slows the production and distribution of hormones throughout your body.
It may be worse at some times than at others. It may also change location, usually becoming more severe in parts of the body that are used most.
