Fibromyalgia

March 27, 2020 2 min read

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue. Symptoms resemble those of arthritis, but fibromyalgia affects the soft tissue, not the joints. The exact cause is unclear but, may be caused by a problem in the brain with nerves and pain signals. The brain misunderstands everyday pain and other sensory experiences making the person more sensitive to pressure, temperature, bright lights, and noise. Fibromyalgia can develop on its own, but tends to run in families, and some scientists think that a gene or genes could make you more likely to develop this condition. Women tend to get it more, or if you have another painful disease such as arthritis or an infection.

Common symptoms:

  1. Trouble sleeping
  2. Morning stiffness
  3. Headaches
  4. Numbness in hands and feet
  5. Problems with your memory
  6. Pain in muscles or bones
  7. Restless legs
  8. Sensitivity to cold or heat
  9. Jaw pain
Fibromyalgia can be hard to diagnose. It sometimes takes visits to several different health care providers to get a diagnosis. One problem is that there isn't a specific test for it, and the main symptoms, pain and fatigue, are common in many other conditions. Health care providers must rule out other causes of the symptoms before making a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Holistic Treatment Options:
  1. An active exercise plan
  2. Acupuncture
  3. Massage
  4. Chiropractic care
  5. Physical Therapy
  6. Having a good diet
