Fibromyalgia, meaning ‘pain of the fibrous tissues’ and once known as ‘rheumatism’ is a very unknown and mis-understood illness… while at the same time becoming a much more common diagnosis.
It is a disorder characterised by widespread muscular and skeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.

Anyone can develop fibromyalgia, although it is usually seen in women more than men.
The condition typically develops between the ages of 30 and 50, but can occur in people of any age, including children and the elderly.


There are many ways of treating the symptoms but here at Oak Tree we have found great success by going to the deep source of the problem on the Spirirual and Energetic planes.
We have discovered that the roots can often lie in childhood trauma in combination with spinal injury, particularly of the neck!

It can sometimes be triggered after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually build-up over time with no single triggering event.

It is believed that people with fibromyalgia have differences in the way the central nervous system processes pain messages throughout the body. This could be due to changes to chemicals in the nervous systemย (the brain, spinal cord and nerves) which transmits information all over your body. This may explain why fibromyalgia results in constant feelings of pain and tiredness.


Fibromyalgia is what’s known as a ‘hidden disease’ because the indicators can be extremely serious but are mostly not visible. Here are some of the main symptoms

Widespread pain. If you have fibromyalgia, one of the main symptoms is likely to be widespread pain. …

Extreme sensitivity. …

Stiffness. …

Fatigue. …

Poor sleep quality. …

Cognitive problems (‘brain-fog’) …

Headaches. …

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Depression and anxiety can also go hand-in-hand with fibromyalgia.

There may be periods when your symptoms get better or worse, depending on factors such as:

Your stress levels
Changes in the weather
Your physically activity


From an the article I recently read-
“I want people to respond with understanding and sympathy when someone tells them, โ€œI have fibromyalgia.
But, sadly, I have read many discussions on fibromyalgia forums where patients talk about their lack of family support or the lack of understanding in their social circle, which is why blogs and social networks are so important. They remind us that weโ€™re not alone.”
