Reducing fibromyalgia pain is a
challenge most sufferers deal with each day. Fibromyalgia is a medical syndrome
that causes widespread pain and stiffness in the muscles and joints.
Fibromyalgia patients, more than 90% of whom are women, nearly always report trouble sleeping
. This results
in chronic daytime fatigue.
Although the causes of fibromyalgia
are unknown, there seem to be a number of factors involved. Many people
associate the development of the syndrome with a physically or emotionally
stressful or traumatic event. Other people link it to repetitive injuries, an
illness, or temperature changes. For individuals who suffer from fibromyalgia,
the combination of pain and sleep disturbance is a double-edge sword, where the
pain makes sleep more difficult and sleep deprivation exacerbates pain. The
good news is that a reduction in sleep disturbance is usually followed by
improvement in pain symptoms. This highlights the importance of healthy sleep
for sufferers of fibromyalgia.

This helps with a more restful sleep since people do not need to toss and turn
at night to constantly re-shape the pillow. The Align-Right pillow’s
comfortable support keeps the body from moving long enough for the individual
to reach the deep sleep stage. This is the deepest and most restorative sleep
where muscles are relaxed, tissue growth and repair occurs, and energy is
