FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia (FM) has only been an officially recognized medical condition since 1991. Before then, it was sometimes called "Fibrositis", but often patients suffering with this painful muscular pain were often told 'it will go away' or brushed aside as not a medical problem, but something else. Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that causes debilitating pain, most commonly widespread muscular pain and fatigue. You may also experience a variety of other related symptoms ranging from jaw pain to headaches, fatigue and more. You are generally miserable most days and relief seems almost impossible - it's not, we can help control the pain and make those days less miserable, possibly many good days - with proper treatment.


COMMON SYMPTOMS OF FIBROMYALGIA
The primary symptom, pain, often moves throughout your entire body, usually between your shoulder blades, on your forearms and outer thighs, and throughout your neck and back.
Some may experience lower energy levels, memory & focusing and varying degrees of sleep disorders, anxiety and/or depression.
No two people are alike and symptoms vary.
