Fibromyalgia Pain Management - Tips and Remedies for Relief
Do you need help with fibromyalgia pain management?
The actual cause of fibromyalgia has not been determined, though there are multiple suspects. Some claim stress sets it off, while others insist it takes only a simple episode such as lifting something in the wrong manner to start the cycle of chronic pain. Though these two are cited more than others, it is often a more traumatic event that triggers the pain - a car accident, a fall, or something emotionally painful.
Though only 2% of the American population suffers from fibromyalgia, 80% of them claim the onset of the disorder generally includes muscle aches as well as pain to the touch. Some complain of flu-like symptoms - dull, aching pain, while others suffer restless sleep and fatigue throughout the following days. Several sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, have been linked to the disorder, too.
Whether your pain is flu-like or touch-sensitive, it can interfere with your daily routine. Fibromyalgia can lead to other disorders such as chronic fatigue, or be the result of a disorder such as lupus. It can result in headaches and trigger depression, too. In any case, fibromyalgia pain management is important, and there are things we can do to help with the intensity as well as the duration of the pain.

A note about Fibromyalgia Pain Management - Tips and Remedies for Relief
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
To help with fibromyalgia pain management, those who are suffering from the ailment can involve themselves in physical therapy. Not only does this help ease pain, but it teaches techniques for the self management of pain that help individuals recognize what is taking place. This better prepares them to practice deep breathing, relaxation and rational thinking.
Most sufferers of fibromyalgia clench. It is an involuntary but natural response to stress, and it involves tensing the muscles. Trouble results when the blood flow to the muscles is reduced, as it causes pain. If you couple this with a sedentary lifestyle (which the majority of people suffering from stress are guilty of, and it also restricts blood flow), you double your chances of added pain.
Another good way to help with fibromyalgia pain management is through a daily exercise program, one which increases the pulse rate and therefore ensures more blood is circulated to the muscles. Think running, walking, riding a bike, or a low impact aerobic workout, along with stretching routines (including yoga) for the control of pain and muscle sensitivity. Bear in mind that inactivity (regardless of pain) only intensifies the pain.
Besides fibromyalgia pain management, exercise also helps in so many other areas where those with fibromyalgia suffer. It is great for the mood, to clarify thinking, to help bring about restful sleep, and for increased energy. And it is one of the best ways to help with the onset of depression caused by overwhelming fibromyalgia symptoms.
While all of this is taking place, the pain is naturally being reduced. If you are out of shape, start with flexibility exercises - stretches also help improve range of motion, which is especially good for some sufferers who have pain in the joints (elbows, knees or hips). Water exercises are an easy workout for those who are having extremely painful days, or are very overweight.
The majority of growth hormone is produced during sleep. Without deep restorative sleep due to the frequent interruptions fibromyalgia sufferers experience, and hence lacking the production of needed growth hormones, muscles cannot heal, the body does not recover from the stresses of the day, and neurotransmitters (serotonin) do not get replenished.
Thus, as far as fibromyalgia pain management and healing is concerned, it is important to practice as many of the techniques as you need to live a healthy productive life free of pain.
