Has your fibromyalgia begun causing problems beyond widespread body pain? Have you been experiencing symptoms like headaches that don’t seem to improve despite taking oral pain relievers or trying other sources of relief? Do you struggle every day because your fibromyalgia headaches often get in the way of things like lulling your kids to sleep, spending a fun night out with your friends, making a delish meal on the weekends for your guests, or taking care of the simplest things at home?

Find out how you can address your current health concerns with the help of a few tips from a Migraine Chiropractor based in Vancouver WA.


Fibromyalgia-Induced Headaches: How Do They Work?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that can set off all kinds of issues. These include intense body pain, lethargy, and fatigue despite getting ample sleep at night. In some cases, it can also trigger tension headaches because of its effects on the neck and shoulder muscles. Tension in these areas can impede blood flow and fluid drainage in your head, resulting in increased pressure and an imbalance of brain chemicals. 

Studies are also continuing to understand the relationship between the two by focusing on the importance of maintaining proper posture. Notably, changes in one’s posture due to misaligned neck bones (a common consequence of neck and head injuries like concussions and whiplash), can set off a myriad of health problems including fibromyalgia and headaches.

That’s because the misaligned C1 and C2 bones impinge on vital structures in the neck such as your brainstem, cranial nerves, and cerebral blood vessels supplying nutrition to your brain. As long as the imbalance in the uppermost cervical region lingers, the pressure on these structures remains, affecting various functions ranging from maintaining balance to sensing pain and pressure.
