Fibromyalgia “didn’t exist” until a few years ago! Well, actually it did but wasn’t considered a disease in its own right. Fibromyalgia symptoms were put in the too hard basket by doctors who couldn’t link it to any specific disease.
Fibromyalgia (also known as fibromyalgia syndrome) was confused with rheumatism until quite recently. People complaining of rheumatism quite possibly had fibromyalgia without realizing it. Now that it has been recognized as a disease, those suffering can, at last, be properly diagnosed and stand a better chance of finding relief.
Fibromyalgia Information – what is it?
Fibromyalgia is a very common form of lupus and affects more women than men. It is more prevalent in those 50 years old and over.
The most common symptoms are pain in the muscles and joints. This can sometimes be accompanied by numbness.
Fibromyalgia sufferers can also feel very stiff, especially first thing in the morning. They also may have a feeling of extreme fatigue and have trouble sleeping. Migraine headaches also occur in some sufferers.
Many who have fibromyalgia have an increased sensitivity to pain and cold weather.
No wonder fibromyalgia is so hard to diagnose! These symptoms are fairly common and appear together quite often especially in us oldies! That’s why it’s important to get checked out if you suspect you may be experiencing fibromyalgia symptoms.
A cure for fibromyalgia is probably some years away, but it can be managed and treated quite successfully.
Fibromyalgia pain affects the muscles as well as the joints. The ligaments may also be affected. Thus most treatments focus on relieving this. Diagnosis of this disease is difficult, but those experiencing fibromyalgia symptoms will be offered the same treatment whether the disease is officially diagnosed or not.
Exercise is vital, this will help strengthen the muscles as well as bringing some pain relief. It’s most important to gently stretch the muscles before starting any exercise, start slowly and build up with time. Walking and swimming are both great exercises for fibromyalgia.
Application of heat to affected areas will often bring relief. Massage can also help.
Drugs prescribed for this disease are NSAIDS, (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), tricyclics and tetracyclics (antidepressants)
Natural fibromyalgia medication is a safer and cheaper option and can be extraordinarily successful, however, it sometimes takes a little longer for results to be felt than with the conventional drug treatments.
