What to Know About Fibromyalgia 

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a complex and often misunderstood chronic pain condition that affects the muscles and bones. It can cause widespread pain, sleep issues, mood changes, and more. While the exact cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia comes with a variety of symptoms that can greatly impact your daily life, including:

Pain & Stiffness

Widespread pain throughout the body, often accompanied by stiffness, is one of the most common symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Fatigue & Tiredness

Even after a full night’s rest, individuals with fibromyalgia often wake up feeling exhausted and lacking in energy.

Trouble Sleeping

Sleep disturbances are common in fibromyalgia patients. They often have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, and getting restorative sleep.

Memory & Concentration Issues

Cognitive difficulties, sometimes referred to as “fibro fog,” can cause problems with memory, concentration, and mental clarity.

Headaches/Migraines

Many people with fibromyalgia experience frequent headaches or migraines, adding to their overall discomfort and challenges.

Is It Fibromyalgia, Or Something Else?

Research shows that fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed. At AOTC, we take the time and care with each patient to ensure the proper diagnosis is made. Once patients begin treatment with our experienced rheumatologists, they finally begin to feel better.

Best Fibromyalgia Treatment Options

While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, there are several treatment options available to help manage symptoms and improve quality of life. Treatment plans are often individualized and may include a combination of the following:

Medications

Over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers and certain antidepressants are commonly prescribed to alleviate pain, improve sleep, and manage mood. Some medications used to treat seizures, known as anticonvulsants, have also been found to effectively reduce pain associated with fibromyalgia.

Lifestyle Changes

Regular physical activity like walking, swimming, or yoga, can help improve strength, flexibility, and overall well-being. Stress management techniques like meditation and deep breathing can also help reduce stress and alleviate symptoms.

Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) helps develop coping strategies for pain, sleep, and mood issues. Physical therapy can also improve mobility and reduce pain.
