7 Tips to Reduce Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition affecting mainly females yet men and children can also be affected by this illness.
Fibromyalgia symptoms are characterized by widespread pain affecting all four quadrants of the body.

Fibromyalgia pain has been described as sharp shooting pain, burning, stabbing and even a deep dull ache. Patients with fibro feel like their joints are being affected by the disease but it is the muscles not the joints that are affected.

Other fibromyalgia symptoms are extreme fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, Reynaud's Syndrome, Restless Leg syndrome, memory problems stemming from 'fibro fog,' eye prescription changes and many more.

Each fibro sufferer has differing symptoms and different levels of pain. What helps one fibro patient may not help another; also, the pain and fatigue changes on a day to day basis so it is difficult to prescribe a 'one cure fits all' approach.

  • 1. Exercise - this is the dreaded word for fibromyalgia sufferers as it takes all the energy they have just to get through each day! But, it has been proven that easy gentle exercises do help with the pain and stiffness associated with fibromyalgia pain.
  • It is important to start off slowly and build up to a good routine. Start off walking and increase the time until you can do 30 minutes a day. Swimming is excellent as it takes all the weight off your joints and makes it a good all round work out, but again, start off slowly.
  • 2. A good fibromyalgia diet is a low carbohydrate, high protein diet. Many people with fibromyalgia say they have a lessening of symptoms when they eat a healthier low carbohydrate diet. Eliminating sugar from their diet also helps.
  • 3. Heating pads. Nothing feels better than a warm pad on aching joints. Many types are available today, some you just pop in the microwave for instant warmth that soothes away fibromyalgia pain.
  • 4. Topical medications. There are dozens of creams available that help give instant relief for fibro pain. Some are now specially geared to fibromyalgia.
  • 5. Meditation really helps lower stress levels that often trigger fibromyalgia pain. It may not be a cure-all but with soothing relaxing music, and the ability to totally relax, reduced stress does have a beneficial impact on fibro symptoms
  • 6. Massage stimulates blood flow in aching joints and muscles and the increased blood flow helps reduce fibromyalgia symptoms. This works similar to heating pads but with a deeper relief.
  • 7. Acupuncture. Chinese or Korean acupuncture treats the body as a whole and helps greatly with blood flow. It restores balance to the body as a whole and reduces fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia patients really need to keep a diary or log of their symptoms and to seek out a medical practitioner that is helpful and compassionate.
