It is estimated that five million Americans suffer from Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FM). FM is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. Symptoms sometimes can begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.
While there is no cure for Fibromyalgia Syndrome, acupuncture and herbs can often help control symptoms with fewer side effects than pharmaceutical drugs.
