Symptoms of Fibromyalgia
There is not a standard test for fibromyalgia. Diagnosing fibromyalgia is a process of identifying symptoms and eliminating other possible causes. Three basic steps in diagnosing fibromyalgia include identifying at least 19 painful areas on the body, eliminating other diseases and determining the longevity of symptoms. Some of the symptoms linked to fibromyalgia include:
- Muscle and joint pain
- Pelvic pain
- Extensive tenderness and pain throughout the body
- Cognitive and memory issues
- Headaches, migraines
- Bladder, bowel and digestive disorders
The cause of fibromyalgia is not known, but it is more common in women and those with certain rheumatic diseases.
Treatment for fibromyalgia can include medication management, cognitive or behavioral therapy, and chronic pain treatments, like ketamine infusions. At CLEAR Wellness Group, we understand that treating the whole patient, not just the disease, is the most effective therapy for those with fibromyalgia. Our double board-certified pain physicians design personalized fibromyalgia pain treatment plans that can help manage pain and improve overall health. This can offer a better quality of life for our patients with this debilitating disease.
