What You Need to Know
Fibromyalgia is a chronic medical disorder that causes an intense pain response to physical pressure on the body. It directly affects the muscles and tissues in the body. Family history plays a role in this disorder, as many patients have a loved one who also suffers from Fibromyalgia. Those who suffer from Fibromyalgia also experience anxiety and depression. This disorder creates fatigue and an inability to perform everyday activities because of the consistent pain.
There is actually little known about the exact causes of Fibromyalgia, only that several factors must be involved in order for it to occur. Some studies have shown a correlation between the disorder and early childhood severe trauma. It has also been linked as a side effect resulting from other illnesses like arthritis. Neurological damage that affects the central nervous system also results in the disorder. Studies continue to be done every year in order to find out more about its origins.
What Constitutes Fibromyalgia?
Painful Pressure Points
Painful Pressure Points are the most common sign of having the disorder because this symptom is experienced among everyone diagnosed with it. This symptom is also used to rule out other possibilities during diagnosis. The pressure points where the most pain is experienced is the front of the neck, elbows, back of the head, hips, and back of the knees.
Inability of Concentrate
Many patients describe the inability to concentrate as chronic brain fog. They report forgetfulness and are sometimes at a loss of finding the right words to express themselves while speaking.
Fatigue and exhaustion are a common symptom. Due to a difficulty with sleeping, anxiety and depression are often the result.
Headaches and Migraines
Experiencing headaches and migraines is commonly reported as a symptom. Unlike normal headaches and migraines, they are not triggered by environmental stimuli such as light, sound or movement.
Irritable Bowel or Bladder
Many patients suffering from Fibromyalgia have also been diagnosed with IBS and other bladder issues.
Sensitivity to Environment
Some people experience a hypersensitivity to every day stimulus like light, sound and temperature.
Restless Leg Syndrome
Patients with the disorder can also suffer from restless leg syndrome, making it difficult to fall asleep at night. Feeling of restlessness adds to a lack of sleep, anxiety and depression.
How to Treat Fibromyalgia
Unlike other disorders that depend highly on medication and rest, one of the most popular treatments for fighting Fibromyalgia is a consistent exercise program. Exercise actually helps to manage the chronic pain in patients with these symptoms. Stress reduction practices and sleep promoting activities are paired with consistent exercise and is one of the best ways to control the disorder. When it comes to those who use medications, these medicines target the soft tissues in the body and relax them, easing pain and inducing sleep as a result. Patients who are able to get a healthy amount of sleep usually cope the best despite experiencing some level of chronic pain on a daily basis.
