Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in specific areas of the body. It is considered a complex condition that affects the way the brain processes pain signals, amplifying sensations of pain. Although the exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors.
In addition to widespread pain, individuals with fibromyalgia may experience symptoms such as sleep disturbances, cognitive difficulties (often referred to as “fibro fog”), headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, and depression. The symptoms can vary in intensity and may fluctuate over time.
Diagnosing fibromyalgia can be challenging as there are no specific laboratory tests or imaging studies that can confirm its presence. Diagnosis is typically based on a thorough evaluation of symptoms, medical history, and a physical examination that includes identifying tender points throughout the body.
The management of fibromyalgia often involves a multidisciplinary approach. Treatment may include a combination of medications to address pain, sleep disturbances, and mood disorders, as well as lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, stress reduction techniques, and improving sleep hygiene. Alternative therapies such as yoga, meditation, and energy healing practices like Reiki can also be beneficial in managing symptoms and promoting overall well-being for individuals with fibromyalgia.
