The hallmark of fibromyalgia is muscle pain throughout the body, typically accompanied by:
- Sleep problems.
- Anxiety or depression.
- Specific tender points
Managing fibromyalgia syndrome is a team effort that brings in the physician, the patient, and possibly even more medical experts.
There is no definitive procedure that will cure fibromyalgia syndrome outright. Treating Fibromyalgia is about improving function and lessening pain. Fortunately, it is not a life-threatening or progressive disease, but a chronic condition that can be managed successfully in many cases. Treatment strategies must be individualized to respond to the patient’s needs and lifestyle.
