Fibromyalgia Ear Pain and the Upper Neck

Fibromyalgia Ear Pain Symptoms

If you suffer from fibromyalgia then you know that the list of symptoms is dozens of items long and that many sufferers experience a large number of symptoms. One common symptom of fibromyalgia is ear pain. The pain may occur in or around the ear. Often patients complain of a feeling of fullness in the ear. The ear may also ache or experience ringing. What is the cause of fibromyalgia ear pain and how can it be addressed in a natural way without prescription medication? Read on to learn more about why fibromyalgia sufferers experience ear pain and how natural approaches such as upper cervical chiropractic may prove effective.

While the connection has not been determined for certain, the one thing that is becoming clear is that ear pain experienced by patients with fibromyalgia is not caused by a problem in the ear itself. One study from just last year determined that the problem springs from the central nervous system. But just because the problem is in the nervous system and not the ear doesn’t mean that the pain isn’t real. Unfortunately, many medical practitioners will just prescribe something for the pain rather than looking for the root cause of the problem.

Misalignment of the Upper Neck and Fibromyalgia

A common underlying cause of pain is a misalignment of the upper neck. When the C1 and C2 vertebrae become misaligned the results can be any number of symptoms including ear pain and many of the other symptoms of fibromyalgia. Why is this the case? These two upper neck vertebrae lie at the base of the brain stem. Any misalignment can thus cause neurological problems that may not display as pain in the neck or spine, but as many and varied symptoms. Because of this fact, upper cervical chiropractic is a logical fibromyalgia ear pain approach. It attacks the symptoms at their source instead of just treating the pain.

Studies have connected upper cervical chiropractic to relieve of the symptoms of both fibromyalgia as well as chronic fatigue syndrome. An injury to the upper cervical spine can cause many of the symptoms related to both conditions and the symptoms may take years to surface making diagnosis of the initial injury difficult. By giving upper cervical chiropractic a try as a natural, drug-free fibromyalgia ear pain treatment, you may discover that the ear pain isn’t the only thing about your health that improves dramatically.
