Fibromyalgia, Fibro, FMS, whatever you call it, is a painful and often misunderstood disease.


If you have 'fibro fog', sleep problems, fatigue, muscle pain or all of these, we can help you feel better.  We understand and use exclusively John F. Barnes' myofascial release (JFB-MFR), a gentle therapy that doesn't force the tissue so chances are you will be able to get much better results than other types of traditional therapy. 

Chronic Fatigue, also known as CFS, is a debilitating disease.  Myofascial release therapy can help you by helping to decrease symptoms and increasing your ability to function.  We can help alleviate muscle pain and weakness, relieve depression, improve mood and sleep, and in general, help improve your quality of life

What Is Fatigue With Fibromyalgia?

Fatigue with fibromyalgia is described as crippling, exhausting, and flu-like. You may experience fatigue on arising, even after hours of bed rest. And many people with fibromyalgia have disturbances in deep-level or restful sleep, so the fatigue they feel is not easy to treat.

The fatigue with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) often coincides with mood disturbances, anxiety, or depression. People with fibromyalgia may describe their sleep as unrefreshing or light. Some people with fibromyalgia have pain and achiness around the joints in the neck, shoulder, back, and hips. This makes it even more difficult to sleep and worsens their daytime feelings of sleepiness and fatigue.

Experts theorize that there are similarities between fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, which is a condition primarily characterized by ongoing, debilitating fatigue. Often, people with fibromyalgia describe the fatigue they feel as "brain fatigue." They report a total loss of energy and difficulty concentrating, a condition called "fibro fog."

Fibromyalgia can cause signs and feelings similar to what people experience with osteoarthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis. But unlike the localized pain with bursitis or tendinitis, the feelings of pain and stiffness with fibromyalgia are widespread.

On good days, the fatigue with fibromyalgia may be tolerable with daytime napping. However, on bad days, when fibromyalgia symptoms flare, dealing with fatigue is quite difficult for both individuals with fibromyalgia and their loved ones. Even multiple rest periods throughout the day fail to provide relief from the chronic achiness, fatigue, and exhaustion.
