Are You In Chronic Pain? Fibromyalgia Could Be To Blame

If you experience chronic pain that has become debilitating and often interferes with your daily activities, you could be suffering from fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic pain disorder that causes physical, mental, and social side effects. The sooner you determine whether fibromyalgia is the root cause of your suffering, the sooner you can seek effective and life-changing treatment.

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is defined as a widespread and chronic pain that creates many tender points throughout the body. People with fibromyalgia often experience fatigue, sleep disturbances, and light sensitivity as side effects of such profound pain. When fibromyalgia continues without being treated, it often becomes so debilitating that it interferes with basic daily activities.

How Is Fibromyalgia Treated?

There is no known cure for fibromyalgia, but doctors can recommend a number of different treatments and techniques to minimize symptoms. Non-pharmacological therapies like exercise, massage, acupuncture, herbal supplements, and yoga are all effective tools in managing symptoms. Some patients also receive IV nutritional therapy and experience relief by resolving nutritional deficiencies that caused symptoms of pain. A variety of medications have also been approved by the FDA to treat fibromyalgia, including Lyrica and Cymbalta.
