FIBROMYALGIA


Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS or fibromyalgia) is the term used to describe a cluster of symptoms that may include widespread pain and tenderness in ‘trigger points’ on the body, which are unusually sore to touch.

Fibromyalgia affects two to four per cent of the population, mainly women, although men and adolescents can also develop the condition. It tends to develop during early and middle adulthood or in a woman’s childbearing years.

SYMPTOMS OF FIBROMYALGIA 

The symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary from mild to severe.

IS YOUR PILLOW CORRECT FOR YOUR SLEEPING HABITS?

Too Thin?
- Causes the head to fall out of alignment
- Adds pressure to the shoulder, which can cause shoulder stiffness

Too Thick?
- Forces the head out of alignment
- Reduces the size of the airway, which can lead to snoring

Rest and sleep are the body's chance to heal itself from the postural, physical and nervous insults of the previous day. The use of some of the following pillows can improve the quality of rest and repair, allowing one to wake up more rested and ready to face another day.
