Are you experiencing fatigue, body aches, chronic muscle pain, or even numbness in the hands? If so, this could be a sign of fibromyalgia. It can develop on its own, or secondary to other musculoskeletal conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, or systemic lupus. To be diagnosed you would of have to been experiencing widespread pain and tenderness in at least 11 of 18 tender-point sites for at least three months. Out of the 18 tender spots it usually includes tissues or muscles of the neck, shoulders, chest, rib cage, lower back, thighs, knees, arms and buttocks. The pain you experience could feel something along the lines of a deep aching, radiating, gnawing, shooting or burning pain. Chiropractic care can help work on relieving pain and symptoms with fibromyalgia just by making an adjustment to the neck and spine.
