Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a complex condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and tenderness in the muscles, joints, and soft tissues.

Fibromyalgia

Life goes through many transitions, but each stage and transition is opening a door to another phase of life.

At What’s Good – Wellness by Design, we understand that living with fibromyalgia can seriously impact your life, affecting not only your physical health but also your mental and emotional well-being. Our team of experienced practitioners is here to offer you personalized care and support, combining the power of acupuncture and integrative medicine to help you find relief from the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is a complex condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and tenderness in the muscles, joints, and soft tissues. Along with these primary symptoms, individuals with fibromyalgia often experience a range of secondary symptoms that can significantly impact their quality of life. 

Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Chronic pain throughout the body
  • Fatigue and decreased energy levels
  • Sleep disturbances and insomnia
  • Cognitive difficulties, commonly referred to as “fibro fog”
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Digestive problems
  • Sensitivity to temperature, light, and noise
At What’s Good, we believe in a holistic approach to healing, addressing not only the physical symptoms but also the mental and emotional aspects of fibromyalgia. Acupuncture, a key component of our integrative medicine approach, has shown promising results in alleviating the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.

Numerous published studies have demonstrated the benefits of acupuncture for fibromyalgia. Research has shown that acupuncture can help reduce pain, improve sleep quality, enhance mood, and relieve fatigue. It works by stimulating specific points on the body, promoting the release of endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving chemicals, and regulating the nervous system to restore balance and promote overall well-being

The effects of acupuncture on pain & autonomic dysregulation in fibromyalgia

In the context of fibromyalgia, autonomic dysregulation can manifest as abnormalities in the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) branches of the autonomic nervous system.  Dysregulation can result in symptoms such as increased heart rate, irregular blood pressure, temperature fluctuations, digestive issues, sleep disturbances, and abnormal stress responses.  This study showed that acupuncture significantly reduced pain and improved autonomic regulation, suggesting its effectiveness in managing fibromyalgia symptoms.
