What is Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic condition that causes arthritis-like pain and stiffness throughout the body in muscles, tendons, and joints. It also is associated with restless sleep, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and problems with bowel functions. Although it affects millions of people around the world, until recently, very little was known about fibromyalgia (also known as FMS, or Fibro). Although it exhibits arthritis-like symptoms, pain and discomfort is not accompanied by inflammation or any other kind of physical damage. This is partly what makes the condition so mysterious and fibromyalgia diagnosis so difficult. Patients may feel extreme levels of pain, but are at no risk of internal injury or deformity in bones, joints, or muscles. However, fibromyalgia disability can be severe, and symptoms can interfere with a patient's ability to complete everyday tasks. Although the exact cause of fibro remains unknown, doctors and researchers have developed a variety of methods which have proven to be very successful in treating the varying symptoms of the condition.
At Serenity Pain Center, we are focused on helping patients understand their condition. We offer fibromyalgia diagnosis in our clinic, which can help patients discover the answer to their frustrating pain and fatigue. There is no blood testing for fibromyalgia, but we do provide testing of other conditions that share symptoms with fibromyalgia in order to rule them out as the cause. Additionally, fibromyalgia can be tested by assessing tender points on a patient. People who suffer from fibro generally have specific points across the body that are susceptible to pain when lightly pressed. These points have been charted into 18 specific points used for diagnostic purposes.
After diagnosis, our medical team will work closely with the patient to develop a treatment plan. Depending on which symptoms the patient feels and which are most severe, there a number of treatment options which are able to be explored by doctors and patients. Our goal is to help you find the best way to find pain and symptom relief and get your life back to normal. Living with fibromyalgia doesn't have to be so hard. We're here to help you live easier and live normal again.
