It is quite common for fibromyalgia to flare up when one becomes pregnant. There is much debate as to why this happens, but no one has come to a conclusive answer. Some common symptoms that one may experience while pregnant and suffering from fibromyalgia are:
- Severe cramping of muscles
- Increased sensitivity to tender spot pain depending on the baby’s position
- More than usual nausea and vomiting during the first 3 months of pregnancy
- Disturbed sleep leading to increased tiredness throughout the entire pregnancy
It is highly recommended that fibromyalgia patients who become pregnant look to alternative ways of controlling the condition rather than taking pharmaceuticals.

Coping with Fibromyalgia Through Proper Neck Alignment
The spinal cord has the responsibility of sending and receiving messages from the brain. If a misalignment exists in the top bones of the neck, either the C1 or C2 vertebra, pressure is put on the brainstem and these messages are hindered. When this happens, the end result can be tiredness, sensitivity to pain, and other symptoms of fibromyalgia.
A case study done by a 31-year old who was suffering from fibromyalgia revealed that her symptoms decreased after receiving two months of care from an upper cervical chiropractor. After receiving five adjustments to her atlas (C1) during an 18-month period, she reported no longer needing medication to manage her fibromyalgia.
Here at Upper Cervical Hawaii, I examine my patients thoroughly to find the exact location of their misalignment. Once discovered, I use a gentle, precise method to help the bones to realign more naturally than forcing them into place (as in general chiropractic). The body is then able to repair any existing damage. Communication is restored between the brain and body. Many patients report seeing a dramatic decrease in symptoms of fibromyalgia.
