Some diseases, while not fatal, can cause a lot of suffering. Fibromyalgia is one of these diseases. It is a chronic pain syndrome that causes widespread muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and memory problems. Although the disease itself does not cause tissue damage or organ failure, it places a heavy burden on the patient’s mental health.
Fibromyalgia and Its Symptoms
Fibromyalgia is a common chronic musculoskeletal pain syndrome that belongs to rheumatic immune diseases. It is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and sleep disorder and is often accompanied by symptoms of depression, anxiety, and cognitive impairment.
In addition, fibromyalgia often co-exists with other conditions, such as:
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Migraine and headaches
- Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome
- Temporomandibular joint disorders
- Postural tachycardia syndrome
Causes of Fibromyalgia
The exact cause of fibromyalgia is currently unknown. Many researchers believe that elevated levels of pain signal chemicals have changed the brain and spinal cord of fibromyalgia patients.
Besides, genetics, immune disorders, infections, physical or mental traumas, and over-sensitive pain receptors appear to play a role in fibromyalgia. And women are more likely to have this disease than men.
Treatments for Fibromyalgia
When experiencing widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by other physical symptoms, especially fatigue and sleep disturbances that affect your quality of life, you should seek medical help immediately. The doctor will ask you some questions and perform some tests to determine what kind and how much treatment you need.
The focus of treatment for fibromyalgia is to relieve symptoms and improve overall well-being. Generally, treatments for fibromyalgia include medications and self-care.
Medications can help reduce pain and improve sleep. Common choices include:
- Pain relievers, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen sodium
- Antidepressants, such as duloxetine and milnacipran
- Anti-seizure drugs, such as gabapentin and pregabalin
Note that the latter two may only work for certain cases of fibromyalgia.
Some habits and techniques can help limit the effects of fibromyalgia on your body and life. Here are some suggestions:
- Avoid humid and cold environments
- Do mild exercises, such as aerobics and yoga
- Form good sleep hygiene
- Reduce stress and anxiety, either by staying away from the triggers or seeing a psychologist.
