Fibromyalgia can result in a great deal of frustration as a patient seeks a diagnosis and appropriate medical care. Because this condition causes widespread pain in the body as well as cognitive problems, fatigue, and sleep issues, it can prove very debilitating. An extended diagnosis time does not help matters.
Because these symptoms characterize numerous conditions, doctors have to rule out many other illnesses before an official diagnosis is provided. This may prove exhausting and expensive for the patient. As a result, much research is going into the field of fibromyalgia care.
Recent research has been performed involving the effect of proper hormone regulation on fibromyalgia pain. There are also links to nutrition, exercise, metabolism, sleep, and other necessary lifestyle matters. However, it is important to note that the central nervous system plays a vital role in everything fibromyalgia effects, from pain levels to hormone production.

Caring for Fibromyalgia by Caring for the Central Nervous System
To find natural relief from fibromyalgia, some are beginning to turn to natural ways of helping the nervous system function at its best. One affordable option is upper cervical chiropractic care. This is because an upper cervical misalignment can affect the nervous system on numerous levels. The misalignment may place pressure on the brainstem or spinal cord. Also, cerebrospinal fluid drainage may be affected. Proper blood flow to the brain is also regulated by the upper cervical vertebrae. Correcting the management can provide major benefits.
For example, one woman involved in a case study found that her fibromyalgia symptoms were completely gone after just four months of adjustments. While not every case has that dramatic of a resolution, most patients see a reduction in pain levels and other symptoms.
