Fibromyalgia —Natural Ways to Reduce Anxiety and Pain

Fibromyalgia, Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, Always Tired, Tired, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFS

Fibromyalgia can easily plunge one into a cycle of pain, anxiety, and depression. It is no wonder that fibromyalgia patients deal with anxiety problems. It can be tough to know what you will or will not be able to accomplish for the day before waking up in the morning (assuming you were able to sleep). The uncertainty alone can cause anxiety. And that anxiety, unfortunately, can make pain levels worse.

What we’re going to discuss are a few ways to reduce both the pain and anxiety associated with fibromyalgia by natural means.

Anxiety Reducing Suggestions for Fibromyalgia Sufferers

Here are a few ways to minimize anxiety:

  • Research – Learning everything you can about your condition can help you to know what to expect. Just be sure to give yourself plenty of breaks as well. Doing nothing but research can eventually cause anxiety itself.
  • Support – Stick close to the people who genuinely support you, even those who may not completely understand what you are going through. At the same time, you can seek out the support of those in a similar situation online.
  • Take One Day at a Time – Instead of worrying about how you may feel tomorrow, decide what you can do with the way you feel today. Accomplish what you can, and don’t worry about what you can’t. Worrying about when something will get done won’t help you to feel any better tomorrow.
  • Meditate – Take time to think about positive and important things. During your quiet reflection periods, don’t allow anything negative to creep in. This is your time to feel good about yourself, what you can accomplish, and the good that exists in your life. If you have trouble staying focused on the positive, start with short meditation sessions and gradually lengthen them.

Coping with Fibromyalgia Symptoms

You may find that reducing anxiety using the techniques above actually helps reduce pain or may lead to better sleep. However, another natural way to get help for fibromyalgia symptoms is through upper cervical chiropractic care. The upper cervical spine plays a vital role in everything from facilitating blood flow to the brain to how the brain interprets pain signals. Correcting an existing misalignment can help the body heal and may lead to reduced symptoms. To learn more, set up a consultation with an upper cervical chiropractic near you.
