Fibromyalgia causes widespread pain and extreme tiredness and can be extremely debilitating to live with.
The specific symptoms can vary from person to person but the main symptom is pain all over the body.
It is not clear what causes it, but it often starts after a stressful event like an injury, illness or emotional shock.
Since it doesn’t show up on any tests, it can be difficult to obtain a diagnosis and friends and family and medical professionals may not understand. It can be difficult to cope with well-meaning advice to improve your health through exercise and diet, and treatment only addresses the symptoms, not the underlying cause.
You may not have considered how your breathing impacts your health, but actually, learning to breathe better can help with the symptoms of fibromyalgia (and particularly bad breathing can actually make things worse).
Our breathing methods involve learning how to breathe more slowly and mindfully, using the nose rather than the mouth. Many people suffering like you are now have seen huge improvements in their quality of life by reprogramming good breathing patterns, helping to relieve symptoms by rebalancing the Autonomic Nervous System, and stimulating the vagus nerve.
