What is Fibromyalgia ?
Are you suffering from pain and stiffness which appears worse in the morning and evening ?
Do you suffer from severe fatigue or weakness ?
Poor Sleep, Anxiety, or perhaps noticed a reduction in your memory and concentration ?
Perhaps you've felt a little depressed, suffer from headaches, irritable bowel or bladder function ?
These are just some of the potential signs of Fibromyalgia, a disease which effects soft tissues such as muscles and connective tissues rather than joints, although at first one can often mistakes the pain for joint pain.
Fibromyalgia is characterised by widespread muscular pain, fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues which often result in depressive episodes.
It is believed that Fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by effecting the way the patients brain processes pain signals and is believed to effect over 6% of the population.
What causes Fibromyalgia ?
Genetic predisposition or immune abnormalities are known to be the cause in some cases however, overexertion, lack of exercise, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, infectious illness and even the lack of sleep or indeed too much sleep have also been found to be the cause.
Once correctly diagnosed, Fibromyalgia can be successfully managed with regular massage treatments, which are specifically designed by the therapist to meet each patients individual needs.
