Since the vast majority of fibromyalgia sufferers are young women, it is important to learn about how it affects you throughout pregnancy. Some symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as fatigue and nausea, are also pregnancy symptoms, so it might even be difficult to tell what’s causing them. Fibromyalgia should not stop you from starting a family, but there are some things you should be aware of:
- The additional stress of having a baby might cause a flare-up in fibromyalgia symptoms, and there’s a chance you might feel worse during pregnancy.
- There may be increased nausea and/or vomiting during the first trimester.
- Already difficult and disturbed sleep patterns may worsen.
- Depending on the position of the baby, there might be an increase in tender spot pain.
Because of potential risks to the baby associated with taking medications during pregnancy, many fibromyalgia sufferers are turning to drug-free care methods.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic for Fibromyalgia
Your spine is designed to work to protect your central nervous system, made up of your brain, brainstem, and spinal cord. The atlas is the topmost vertebra in the spine, and it has a big impact on how the rest of the spine below it is able to function. When the atlas misaligns, it creates spinal cord tension. Because the spinal cord is responsible for sending messages between the brain and body, this tension can cause a distortion of these signals. This can be the underlying reason for chronic pain, fatigue, and other fibromyalgia symptoms.
At Upper Cervical Hawaii, our focus is on making sure your body is functioning optimally and receiving normal brain-body signals. To accomplish this, we must make sure that your atlas is in normal alignment. Using specific and gentle adjustments to realign the atlas, we can reduce pressure and tension on the spinal cord. This can lead to a natural and lasting reduction in fibromyalgia symptoms throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
