This symptom is a mystery to many in the medical community. It is a stress related condition and is often related to other illnesses. Fibromyalgia is listed as one of the many symptoms of Epstein Barr--often referred to as a "stress virus". Some people, mostly but not always women, really love using the Sacro Wedgy®. They've told us they are not taking as many pain pills and are able to more easily control symptoms, and it gives them a reason to relax.
Then some with fibromyalgia hate the Sacro Wedgy® because they absolutely cannot relax, and they can't handle any pressure whatsoever in the sacral area and since this is where the Sacro Wedgy® goes, there is no sense in these people even trying it. The main areas most massage therapist concentrate on for those with fibromyalgia are points in the hip (sacrum) and in the neck and shoulders. These are the areas that the Sacro Wedgy® and neck support also pinpoint so for the ones that can handle the initial pressure and discomfort and are able to "give it up" and relax, you too could have a "tool" to use to help relieve symptoms on a long term basis.
Because of the sensitivity in the sacrum or sacroiliac joint, we've found most do better starting with the male version of the Sacro Wedgy® because it is slightly narrower than the female version. Also, it is better to use the Sacro Wedgy® cold (store in the freezer) to help calm and cool the sacral area and the first 3 or 4 times start with no elevation pad to get familiar with the feeling of elevating the sacrum and relaxing at the same time. Of course we would love for this to help everyone but common sense dictates that this is impossible and highly unlikely. It is imperative that you understand how the Sacro Wedgy® works then you will know if it's for you.
