Shoulder Pain Treatment

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed, misinterpreted, and misunderstood.

Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic condition, its complications can cause fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and chronic headaches.

Experts relate it to tendinitis, osteoarthritis, and bursitis, but 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.

Women are ten times more likely to suffer from fibromyalgia than men. The stiffness of the tissue and the overall soreness of the body making getting out of bed difficult.

Localized areas of tenderness, or trigger points, are also frequently seen in fibromyalgia sufferers. These points are located in the tissue around the neck, shoulder, back, and hips. If any pressure is applied, it causes intense pain.

Fatigue is a common symptom of fibromyalgia. Although people often have no trouble falling asleep, they rarely reach the final stage of the REM cycle, where full rest is experienced.

Instead, their sleep is light and they are easily disturbed, awakening exhausted and unrefreshed due to an inability to reach the final stage of relaxation.

Tests in sleep labs have also shown their sleep to be disturbed by constant bursts of brain activity, shattering the serenity of deep sleep and forcing the brain to constantly restart.

Currently, there are no specific tests to diagnose fibromyalgia. If a doctor suspects it, he will perform a diagnosis of exclusion. Meaning, he will rule out other conditions that could cause the symptoms that you are suffering from.

The first thing that he will look at is your personal and family medical history. Then he will give you a physical exam, or a quick check up, to make sure that all things are in working order.

This usually includes blood work, glucose levels, and a thyroid test, all of which can mimic fibromyalgia symptoms.
