What Is Fibromyalgia

It is believed that Fibromyalgia amplifies the pain signals released through the brain, intensifying the pain sensations in your body.

Symptoms may begin after a physical trauma, such as a surgery or infection. Sometimes they present after psychological stress as well. But it is not uncommon for symptoms to gradually appear over time, without a single catalyst event.

Women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men. Those who suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis, or other autoimmune diseases are also susceptible. Many people experience tension headaches, TMJ (temporomandibular joint), anxiety, and/or depression.

There is no cure for fibromyalgia, but medication therapy (in addition to restful sleep and proper diet and exercise) can help you manage the symptoms.


Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

The symptoms of fibromyalgia can include:

  • Tender points on the body. Tender points are specific places on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, arms, and legs. These points hurt when pressure is put on them.
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Morning stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Painful menstrual periods
  • Tingling or numbness in hands and feet
  • Problems with thinking and memory (sometimes called “fibro fog”)

Our physicians are board certified, and are dedicated to giving you a comprehensive exam that will aid in diagnosing the cause of your symptoms.
