Have You been Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia?
If so, you are probably trying to figure out what that means for you. Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes mild to severe generalized musculoskeletal pain and inflammation. It is often accompanied by fatigue, memory and mood issues and sleep disturbances. Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.
The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown and for many doctors the exact diagnosis method is based on signs and symptoms and specific points that are tender throughout the body. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals which is why our office can help!
Fibromyalgia is categorized as a very common disorder with more than three million new cases in the US each year. For unknown reasons, women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, and anxiety and depression, which often exacerbate the condition. Simple daily activities such as carrying in the groceries or walking up a flight of stairs can seem impossible.
