Pain occurs from time to time, and most people probably prefer bearing it to taking pills when it is mild. However, if the pain occurs frequently and starts affecting different areas of your body, you should be aware of fibromyalgia.
What Are the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic immune disease, often manifesting widespread musculoskeletal pain as the most noticeable symptom in patients. Some may also experience fatigue, sleep disorder, depression, anxiety, and cognitive impairment.
In addition, fibromyalgia may indirectly lead to or be accompanied by other diseases, such as:
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Migraine and headaches
- Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome
- Temporomandibular joint disorders
- Postural tachycardia syndrome
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
Scientists have done many studies to determine the cause of fibromyalgia. The most popular theory is that neural changes have made patients more sensitive to pain. These changes may cause the brain to produce too many pain signal chemicals and further lead to fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive problems.
Moreover, genetics, immune disorders, infections, traumas, and gender are other risk factors for fibromyalgia.
How to Treat Fibromyalgia?
If the pain, fatigue, or sleep disturbances makes your life miserable, you should seek medical help. The doctor will know how to help you once you receive a proper diagnosis.
Relieving symptoms and improving general well-being is the priority in treating fibromyalgia. For most patients, medication and self-care are two basic elements of the treatment.
Medications can help alleviate pain, sleep disorders, and depression. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, are usually safe to relieve pain caused by fibromyalgia. If the patient also has depression or anxiety, the doctor may also prescribe antidepressants, such as duloxetine and milnacipran.
Some lifestyle changes may help reduce the pain of fibromyalgia, such as:
- Avoid humid and cold environments
- Do mild exercises, such as aerobics and yoga
- Keep good sleep hygiene
- Lessen stress and anxiety
