There are many critical conditions and diseases to which we can succumb. The general public are not fully aware of these and sometimes a tiny ache which would normally be written off as a minor discomfort, could be fronting a more serious problem.
One of the significantly less known critical circumstances is known as fibromyalgia.
This illness is common yet challenging to comprehend. The condition is also connected to fatigue, sleep troubles, head aches, depression and nervousness.
The particular cause is still unknown and therefore it proves difficult for experts to positively identify if a patient is suffering from Fybromyalgia or some other condition which may have similar symptoms. Physical or psychological traumas, irregular ache response, sleep disturbances, and infection from viruses are just few things that can trigger fibromyalgia.
The the signs of this disease can become severe if neglected at an early stage. The areas where you feel discomfort are known as tender points. These can be located in the soft tissue at the back of the neck, shoulder muscles, chest, knees, elbows and hips, but the joints are not affected even though the deep ache or burning pain can feel as if it’s from the joints. You can experience neck pain, back pain, knee pain, foot pain, elbow pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain.
There are certainly a number of tests which a sufferer must undergo to identify whether they have a Fibromyalgia Condition. As a rule of thumb, you have to be experiencing an extensive pain and tenderness consistently for 3 months in at least eleven out of eighteen areas such as in arms, chest, knees, neck, shoulders, thighs, ribs etc.
The accurate and proper diagnosis of fibromyalgia might take years and patients would normally pay a visit from one doctor to another. Laboratory tests and x-rays show no scientific measures and blood or urine tests are typically normal.
Treatments include Physical Therapy, physical rehabilitation, exercise and exercise programs, and stress relief techniques like light massage – and other therapies.
