Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a disorder that causes widespread musculoskeletal pain in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues throughout the body. The pain is often combined with other symptoms like fatigue, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ/TMD), irritable bowel syndrome, depression, anxiety, cognitive issues, and sleep interruption. The exact cause of this painful and mysterious condition is unknown, but risk factors include traumatic injury, rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune disorders such as lupus and genetic factors.

Diagnosis of FMS can be difficult, as there is no specific lab test to determine if the patient has the disorder. Current guidelines state that a diagnosis can be made if a person has widespread pain for more than three months, with no underlying medical condition.

What are some Common Symptoms of Fibromyalgia?

  • Widespread pain
  • Fatigue and overall loss of energy
  • Jaw pain and stiffness
  • Pain and tiredness in the face muscles and adjacent fibrous tissues
  • Headaches
  • Irregular sleep patterns
  • Anxiety and/or depression
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Painful menstrual periods
  • Tingling and numbness in the hands and feet
  • Restless leg syndrome (RLS)
  • Sensitivity to cold or heat
  • Fatigue

At Performance Health & Wellness, we are focused on your overall health and well-being, and we are committed to helping you relieve your symptoms. There is currently no cure for fibromyalgia, but exercise, acupuncture, and behavior therapy can help relieve symptoms and improve sleep quality and overall quality of life. Many patients find that regular Chiropractic sessions that involve adjustments to the neck and spine can greatly relieve many of the associated symptoms of fibromyalgia. Regular ART and massage therapy treatments have also been shown to greatly reduce chronic pain and allow for a better quality of life.
