Breaking Free from Fibromyalgia: Marci's Journey to Healing with Acupuncture

Blog Post Graphic-17

Fibromyalgia... It's a difficult to treat chronic pain condition and MORE. 

Meet Marci, she's 58. Despite her youthful spirit, she feels like she's 90-years-old. The daily battles with fibromyalgia have taken their toll. 

  • Her life is a painful struggle—her entire body aches, and the pain seems insurmountable. Feeling stuck, unable to move forward. 
  • She searches for the simple pleasure of a good night of sleep. Instead, she tosses and turns all night because of relentless pain. 
  • Mornings are the worst. Instead of feeling refreshed, she wakes up exhausted. She was always known for her sharp mind and quick wit. Everything has changed. Now she finds herself struggling to navigate through her essential daily needs, let alone considering the prospect of holding down a job. 
  • This cycle has continued for years. She doesn't even know who she is anymore. Everything she once loved–friends, family, community, vacations, and hobbies–are now past distant memories of the woman she used to be. 

Despite countless visits to doctors and trials of various medications, Marci found that her pile of symptoms just kept growing. The very medications meant to alleviate her suffering ended up adding new layers of side effects. She felt hopeless.

After a crying session on the phone with her sister, a glimmer of hope emerged. 

The Turning Point:

One simple question from her sister changed the course of Marci's journey: 

"Have you tried acupuncture? I've heard it can help fibromyalgia patients." 

Hesitant but desperate for relief, Marci books an appointment with Dr. Kimberly Thompson at Meridian Family Acupuncture.

AcuGraph Assessment:

Dr. Kimberly starts with an AcuGraph assessment of Marci's acupuncture pathways. To Marci's amazement, the imbalances detected in her acupuncture pathways aligned perfectly with her fibromyalgia symptoms. It's as if acupuncture knows her on a deeper level. Intrigued and hopeful, she decides to give acupuncture a chance.
