With more than 3 million reported cases in the United States, fibromyalgia is a prevalent health condition that manifests in pain all throughout the body. It is often accompanied by sleep disruption, fatigue, and mood changes. Our staff at Woodgrove Pines Wellness Clinic knows how to provide relief for fibromyalgia. Using the latest technology in alternative medicine, we help restore health and wellness in patients who are suffering from fibromyalgia.
Common Signs and Symptoms of Fibromyalgia
Often hard to diagnosis, there is no real test to determine if you have Fibromyalgia. Lab work may be done, but it does not give a real affirmative answer. The most common signs, though associated with the condition are:
Pain and stiffness throughout the body
Often tired or fatigued
Depression with anxiety
Headaches that can become migraines
Thinking and concentration problems
Numbing or tingling in hands and feet
Pain in face or jaw
Digestive issues (Such as stomach pain, bloating, the onset of IBS)
Fibromyalgia can affect anyone at any age, although, most people are diagnosed in their 30s or 40s. It is often accompanied by other conditions too, such as Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis and other associated arthritic conditions.
There are various treatment methods to help those that suffer from fibromyalgia. There are also classes in how to cope with living with fibromyalgia. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has also proven helpful. It is normally used to treat depression. Depression is often associated with fibromyalgia so it makes sense, CBT is used as a treatment. Alternative medicine has also become a growing trend in treatment with fibromyalgia pain. At Woodgrove Pines Wellness Clinic chiropractic care we do just that.
