Can Acupuncture Help with Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that can cause pain and tenderness throughout the body. It can also cause sleeping disorders, and it is sometimes complicated for medical professionals to understand the cause. Its symptoms are like other conditions, and it can be hard to determine the condition with diagnosis. It is often misdiagnosed, and several questions have been raised over its origin. Do you know fibromyalgia affects 4 million people, 2% of the population? More cases of women are found and quite common in the middle ages. However, even children can be affected by the condition. The diagnostic process depends on the severity of pain and the areas of musculoskeletal pain. The other symptoms of the condition are:

  • Sleeping for long periods without any proper rest
  • Headaches
  • Dry eyes
  • Rash
  • Itching
  • Trouble focusing on anything
  • Depression
  • Anxiety or stress
  • Pain or a dull ache in the lower abdomen
  • Bladder problems
  • Constant pain can affect your physical as well as mental health. It can make it hard for you to continue in the daily routine of work and social life. It may also affect you mentally, as being in a state of constant pain and not being able to go through your day can be disappointing. Remember, a condition not only affects your physical state but can make a profound impact on your mental health.

    If you have trouble finding relief from pain, it may be worth trying acupuncture. Studies have shown that acupuncture has been beneficial for fibromyalgia patients. Acupuncture is one of the most natural methods that has helped patients. It has helped increase the quality of life and overall well-being.

    Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine. It aims to correct imbalances of energy or “Chi” in the body. We use fine needles to stimulate the body’s major energy-carrying channels or meridians. Some people do not experience pain when trying acupuncture but may report twinges when needles are inserted. For some, the experience can vary as everyone is different. Remember, it has many potential health benefits for fibromyalgia, including:

  • Lower pain levels
  • Possible immune system stimulation
  • Better sleep
  • Helps in relaxation
  • Improves overall health
