Fibromyalgia, a debilitating disease affecting as many as 5 million Americans, interrupts the way the brain processes pain signals, amplifying these sensations to unbearable levels. It’s generally characterized by the presence of tender points on the body – sites on the shoulders, neck, arms, back, hips, and legs are hyper-sensitive.   Even the most miniscule of touches to these areas can be extremely painful.
