What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a complex condition that causes widespread pain severe enough to interfere with your daily activities and ability to care for yourself.

While the underlying cause of fibromyalgia isn’t well understood, you could be at increased risk for the condition as you age. You might also be prone to fibromyalgia if you have mood disorders like depression or an autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.

Women tend to develop fibromyalgia more often than men, especially if their parents or close relatives suffer from the condition.

The Advanced Medical Care team offers comprehensive fibromyalgia care, including diagnostic testing and customized treatment. They focus on relieving your pain and enhancing the overall quality of your life and long-term health.

When should I seek treatment for fibromyalgia?

You should schedule a fibromyalgia consultation at Advanced Medical Care if you have unexplained body pain that doesn’t improve with rest and over-the-counter medication.

You also need a diagnostic evaluation if you have other symptoms of fibromyalgia like:

  • Persistent fatigue
  • Muscle spasms
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Recurrent headaches
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Increased sensitivity to light, sounds, and smells

Fibromyalgia can also affect your cognitive abilities and impair your ability to concentrate or focus on tasks. This impairment is often called “fibro fog.”

The neurology team conducts in-depth evaluations to confirm that your symptoms point to fibromyalgia. Tests like nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG) are available in the office to arrive at an accurate diagnosis.

How is fibromyalgia treated?

There’s no cure for fibromyalgia, so the Advanced Medical Care team creates a treatment plan to control your symptoms. The treatment goals are to minimize pain and prevent your condition from worsening.

Your fibromyalgia care plan will include one or more of the following treatments:

  • Prescription pain medication
  • Antidepressants
  • Anti-seizure medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Acupuncture

The team can also recommend strategies to reduce stress and cope with fibromyalgia pain. They can also recommend resources that help improve your cognitive function if you have difficulties focusing on tasks or paying attention.
