Fibromyalgia/Autoimmune

Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder that causes individuals to have pain in muscles, ligaments, joints, and fibrous tissues in the body. "Surveys suggest that 66% to 99% of patients with fibromyalgia are using at least one complementary therapy such as acupuncture or massage because pharmacologic therapies provide insufficient relief of symptoms and are not curative" (Clarke, 2004)

  • - Sleep disturbances
