Fibromyalgia is a very unpleasant long term and and disabling condition which causes patients to suffer a multitude of symptoms including widespread pain, extreme tiredness, difficulty in sleeping, headaches and problems with memory and concentration.
A recent trial,published in the British Medical Journal, to evaluate the effectiveness of acupuncture in patients with Fibromyalgia concluded that it was a useful treatment to reduce pain when compared with placebo treatments. This effect persisted for one year during the trial. Side effects were mild and infrequent.
