Fibromyalgia is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed and misunderstood conditions of the musculoskeletal system.  It’s chronic, and it’s painful.  Rather than a clearly defined and easily diagnosed disease, fibromyalgia primarily presents itself as a cluster of symptoms, which may include but is not limited to:

 
Anxiety
Depression
Tiredness
Overall pain
Sleep problems
Memory issues

 

The symptoms of fibromyalgia may be mitigated with essential oils by using them in an ultrasonic diffuser, massaging onto affected areas, and soaking in a warm bath.
