According to experts, the accumulation of physical and emotional stress is one of the top triggers of fibromyalgia. Subsequent to the diagnosis of fibromyalgia, the stress level further escalates as one struggles with the intensity and anxiety of pain. This causes the patient to fall into a deeper cycle of pain and emotional stress hence preventing the patient from improving or recovering from the pain disorder. Hence, instead of solely focusing on reducing pain, it is also important for fibromyalgia patients to condition their minds to combat pain and stress. This can be done through meditation or mindfulness as it is believe that it can well lead to changes in the brain and nervous system that give you significant measure of pain and stress relief.
