Fibromyalgia, Sleepless Nights and Neck Pain

Hundreds of patients come to a Redwood City upper cervical chiropractic clinic seeking help for fibromyalgia. It’s a pain disorder that triggers musculoskeletal pain plus a long list of other problems, including neck pain and sleepless nights.

Sadly, when you experience neck pain and sleeping difficulty because of fibromyalgia, it becomes harder to manage the condition. But why do these two symptoms happen? How do they connect to fibromyalgia? Let’s learn more about them here.

Quick Facts About Sleeping Problems Due to Fibromyalgia

Dr. Pete Tsiglieris, our Redwood City upper cervical chiropractic doctor, emphasize the need for good quality sleep when managing fibromyalgia. It helps the body heal and curbs the intensity of the attacks. Sadly, it remains one of the most common complaints of our fibromyalgia patients. Here’s a list of quick facts on fibromyalgia and sleep: 

  • Good  night rest is one of the crucial factors that affects the severity of fibromyalgia symptoms
  • Roughly 75 percent of patients with fibromyalgia say they struggle to fall asleep
  • Most patients with fibromyalgia report having increased sleeping disturbances 
  • Lack of good quality sleep often results in increased pain sensitivity
  • The latest statistics say that about 61 percent of men and 32 percent of women have sleep apnea due to fibromyalgia

Neck Pain and Fibromyalgia 

Neck pain can cause extreme discomfort, whether lying on a bed or walking out the streets. If you have fibromyalgia, chances are you also have neck stiffness or soreness.

Studies explain that this problem stems from a slight misalignment of the neck bones. The impeded flow of fluids like cerebrospinal fluid and blood into the brain and the pressure on the brainstem contribute to the fibromyalgia condition and triggers neck pain. Until you get your upper cervical bones restored, your symptoms like neck stiffness, musculoskeletal pain, and sleeping problems will most likely persist.
