What Is Fibromyalgia?
Millions of people in the United States suffer from fibromyalgia, making it one of the most commonly occurring illnesses for chronic pain in the country. In most cases, the prevalent effect of this condition is joint pain, which causes tenderness and swelling in the joints. Fibromyalgia can also cause:
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Poor sleeping habits
- Mental and emotional distress
Even though this condition is exceedingly common, it can still be difficult to diagnose because doctors are unsure whether the pain is caused by certain biological factors or by certain conditions that cause the painful symptoms. Our team at Pain Zero offers several minimally invasive procedures to help reduce chronic pain symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Reach out to our team in Central Ohio to learn more.
Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments of Fibromyalgia
Widespread muscle pain and tenderness are the most common symptoms of fibromyalgia. Pain from this condition can vary on an individual basis, but it usually comprises of inability to focus or extreme fatigue. Other symptoms may be:
- Gastrointestinal symptoms, such as constipation, nausea, and gas
- Mood swings
- Sensory symptoms, such as pins and needles sensation or sensitivity to pain
- Joint stiffness
- Tingling feet
Fibromyalgia can often coexist with other disorders, including TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder), arthritis, migraines, and irritable bowel syndrome. While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, our doctors at Pain Zero can treat this condition through medication, lifestyle changes, and self-care methods, such as stress management, exercise, and relaxation. Medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration provide relief from pain and insomnia, including tricyclic antidepressants, anti-seizure drugs, and sleep medications.
