Are You Experiencing Fibromyalgia?

Chronic pain can make even the simplest of tasks uncomfortable and exhausting. Being in pain from the moment you wake up, until the moment you go to sleep again, can make you dread the day. Additionally, being in pain all night can make it nearly impossible to get a good night’s rest. If you are experiencing widespread chronic pain, fatigue, and mood changes, you might be suffering from fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia and chiropractic care have become increasingly connected, as chiropractic work has had a noticeably positive impact on the lives of fibromyalgia sufferers.
