Speaking of pain, fibromyalgia is the name of a pattern of symmetrical chronic pain points throughout the body that often occur together with muscle stiffness, fatigue, poor sleep, irritable bowels and more. As the pain is not of an inflammatory nature, it can be quite difficult to treat with conventional medicine.
In Chinese medicine, pain is always caused by a stagnation of Qi (energy) and/ or Blood. In order to relieve pain, you need to move Qi & Blood via herbs and acupuncture.
