Fibromyalgia treatments include physical therapy, acupuncture, and ice and heat application. Fibromyalgia is however often misdiagnosed, misinterpreted, and misunderstood because at the moment there are no actual tests to diagnose fibromyalgia.
Instead of testing if you have Fibromyalgia, doctors perform a diagnosis of exclusion. Meaning, that the doctor will rule out other conditions that could cause the symptoms that you are suffering from and if there is no other cause you may be diagnosed as suffering from Fibromyalgia.
Because of the difficulty in diagnosing Fibromyalgia it is especially important to be aware of its symptoms.
Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic condition. Fibromyalgia complications can cause fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and chronic headaches. Fibromyalgia is widespread and attacks all muscles and nerves of the body. For some people, the pain comes and goes, but for others its incessant throb never leaves. Fatigue is another common symptom of fibromyalgia.
