Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by poor sleep quality, extreme fatigue, and musculoskeletal pain. Patients often experience brain fog, poor concentration and focus, depression, and anxiety. Many may also develop irritable bowel syndrome.
Conventional physicians may prescribe muscle relaxants, pain medications, and sedative hypnotics such as Ambien. Some may also recommend trigger point injections. Many patients find the above treatments not very effective. They continue to miss work and lose productivity. Quality of life is very poor and relationships are adversely affected.
