Treating Symptoms of Fibromyalgia with Massage
Fibromyalgia - Signs and Symptoms
Fibromyalgia is a very debilitating and often misunderstood condition.
Because there is no single test for it, and there are no outward physical signs of the illness, it can be difficult to diagnose. A final diagnosis can only be made following analysis of the symptoms experienced and all other conditions being ruled out.
The symptoms of fibromyalgia are many and varied, but three of the central problems are; chronic pain (hypersensitivity to pain), chronic fatigue and cognitive dysfunction. Sleep disturbances can be expected which compounds the chronic fatigue.
Muscular tension, waking with stiff and sore muscles, digestive disorders, and recurrent headaches may all be experienced by the person with fibromyalgia.
Here, Maureen Abson LMT, shows how massage can relieve some of those symptoms.
