Fibromyalgia Treatments

I mentioned some of these a while ago, but it pays to mention it for my new followers.

  1. acupuncture – I haven’t tried it and doubt I ever will (hate needles) but others have mentioned that it helped them
  2. oil massage – I have tried this and you need a massage therapist who is familiar with fibromyalgia and who will listen if you want to stop because they are hurting you. Not every massage therapist is familiar with the pain of fibromyalgia.
  3. chiropractor – I have been seeing one regularly for about 6 years now. I currently have a back ache, a severe one, and had to go sooner. Regular treatment for me now is every other week.

Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia: Does it Work?

Acupuncture is an Eastern style treatment. Feelings are mixed on whether it works or not. I know people who swear by it, but I am afraid of it due to being terrified of needles and the treatment consists of the placement of thin needles in certain areas.

The good thing is that you can stop it immediately if it is not working. No weaning necessary.
