Fibromyalgia is characterized by wide spread pain, difficulty with sleep, whether it is that patients do not sleep at all or that they have an underlying sleep disorder such as Sleep Apnea. They feel tired all the time and essentially say that they ache all over. Their muscles feel very stiff and they are very tender to touch.
We are starting to get some results from a program that has been in development for the last three or four years. A number of our patients are becoming, in some instances, pain free, and in some instances they are able to get off medication. In other instances they are able to get back to a fairly normal lifestyle, but this takes time and effort on the patient’s part.
