Fibromyalgia Cork – Fibromyalgia is an illness that can cause chronic pain in muscles and ligaments and can be triggered by stress or anxiety. Fibromyalgia sufferers can experience flare-ups where they can feel relatively well at times and then at other times can experience extremes in their symptoms.
Hypnotherapy helps by finding the root cause of that stress or anxiety and resolving it naturally and also by helping you to re-programme your sleep patterns and stress responses.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
Here’s where doctors differ. Officially the cause is unknown. Recent research may indicate that people with fibromyalgia process pain differently because of an increased level of cerebrospinal fluid which helps transmit pain messages. Other research points to a lack of deep sleep – that stage of sleep which is vital for the body’s repair and restore functions.
In my experience of dealing with fibromyalgia clients, there are interesting similarities in many cases. Many fibromyalgia sufferers that I have helped with hypnotherapy would have had long periods of stress in their past. Examples of this would be a parent dying while you were just a child, having an alcoholic parent, being consistently bullied during childhood, being under serious and constant financial stress and worry, etc.
