Treating Fibromyalgia at the Milwaukee Acupuncture and Health Center
Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a disorder of chronic widespread pain associated with other concerns including debilitating fatigue, sleep disturbance, joint stiffness, digestive issues, depression/anxiety and even cognitive dysfunction. According to the diagnostic criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology there must be widespread pain of more than three month’s duration in 11 out 18 tender muscle sites (trigger points) in different part of the body. The causes of FMS still remain unclear. Clinical study, however, has revealed that the neurochemical abnormality in the brain and the activities of trigger points in musculoskeletal system have a close relationship with its sign and symptoms.
