Chronic Pain Syndromes (Fibromyalgia)
Acute pain is a normal signal from the body alerting us to a problem that needs to be addressed. Chronic pain, however, is a much more complex illness that requires a multifaceted approach to healing. Chronic pain occurs when ‘pain signals’ within the body, keep firing in the nervous system, even when the pain stimulus is long gone. This condition is often referred to as Chronic Pain Syndromes or Fibromyalgia. People with Fibromyalgia frequently hurt all over and often feel totally worn out. The symptoms can be so severe that they are forced to limit daily activities, which once gave them much pleasure.
