Fibromyalgia is a complex medical disorder characterized by extreme fatigue, muscle stiffness, and skeletal pain. Manyfibromyalgia patients also suffer from mood and memory disorders. Although doctors are not sure of the exact causes of this disease, genetics, infections, and physical trauma are all thought to play roles in its development. Conventional treatment includes prescription pain relievers, antidepressants and anti-seizure drugs, but these medications are not effective for all patients. Some patients experience the greatest relief from symptoms when they turn to these alternative treatments, either in conjunction with, or in place of prescription drugs.
