Fibromyalgia

Widespread Pain and Fatigue

Chronic joint pain and fatigue, sleep disturbances, and memory loss are all possible symptoms of fibromyalgia. No single test exists to confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, so experienced pain management specialists may use a variety of tests to rule out other conditions that could be contributing to chronic pain and fatigue.

When chronic pain is difficult to diagnose or treat, it can lead to anxiety and depression, which in turn can make symptoms worse. Many people with fibromyalgia also report that previous healthcare providers haven’t taken their symptoms seriously.

Center for Pain Management specializes in helping people with chronic pain feel better. If you’re experiencing widespread pain and other symptoms, please contact us to schedule a pain management consultation: (317) 706-7246.

Fibromyalgia Risk Factors

Factors or conditions that may raise the risk of developing fibromyalgia include:

  • Some types of infections
  • Arthritis
  • Physical trauma (such as injuries in a car accident)
  • Psychological stress
  • Family history of fibromyalgia

Women are more likely than men to develop this condition.

Fibromyalgia Treatment

Treatment for this condition may consist of anti-inflammatory or anti-seizure medications, nerve blocks, physical therapy, counseling, and dietary supplements. Ongoing treatment is usually the best way to control symptoms.
