Fibromyalgia Solutions

Do I Have Fibromylagia?

Fibromyalgia, previously also known as muscular rheumatism and fibrositis, is a condition characterized by aching pain, tenderness and stiffness of the muscles in many parts of the body.
It is associated with fatigue, poor sleep and memory.

Fibromylagia can cause very significant personal distress, making it hard to walk, needing time off work, affect a person’s social interactions and result in depressed mood.

Do I Need To Do Blood Tests, X-ray or MRI?

Investigations such as blood tests, X-rays and MRI’s can sometimes help with diagnosis by excluding other medical causes of a patient’s symptoms.
However as blood tests can be unpleasant and MRIs can be costly, they should be used only when necessary for your specific symptoms.

How Can Fibromyalgia Be Treated?

The treatment of fibromyalgia is often difficult. Many patients consult multiple doctors, specialists, and alternative healthcare providers with limited success.

A combination of medications and physiotherapy can offer some relief of symptoms.

Your doctor might start suggest some painkillers, antidepressants and even anti-seizure medications.
Physiotherapy is another recommended option using techniques such as manual therapy, stretches and muscle strengthening conditioning.
Physiotherapy can can have good results when properly applied.
Unfortunately many patients face difficulty getting the regular appointments and personalized attention of a physiotherapist needed to achieve good results.
