Fibromyalgia - Winter Park, FL

Fibromyalgia - Winter Park, FL

Fibromyalgia can be defined as pain felt throughout the entire body. The effects are long lasting and are specifically experienced in the muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. The pain may also feel like it is in your joints, although fibromyalgia does not physically affect these areas.

Fibromyalgia pain generally begins at a specific area known as a tender point and then radiates outward. These tender points can include the back of the neck, shoulders, chest, lower back, hips, shins, elbows, or knees.

Causes of Fibromyalgia

Doctors are still unsure as to what specifically causes fibromyalgia. Research indicates that hormonal imbalance may have an impact, especially when it comes to the thyroid and adrenal glands.

Another popular belief is that the functions of the brain that process pain may be acting in an unnatural way causing some to experience fibromyalgia symptoms. Some people may notice that their fibromyalgia is negatively affected by physical activity, stress, or even cold weather.

Symptoms & Associated Conditions of Fibromyalgia

Patients dealing with fibromyalgia describe the sensation in a number of ways. It can be experienced as a deep ache or shooting pain. Symptoms can arise exclusively in the morning upon waking, or they can persist throughout the entire day.

There are several conditions that generally coincide with fibromyalgia:

  • Physical trauma
  • Emotional stress
  • Poor sleep
  • Viral infection
  • Chronic neck or back pain
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Lyme disease

In some cases, fibromyalgia symptoms can also bring about:

  • Trouble concentrating
  • Tingling in the hands and feet
  • Migraine headaches
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Diagnosis and Treatment

If you have been experiencing pain throughout your body that emanates from one of the tender points mentioned above, and if it has persisted for three or more months, you may be suffering from fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia that's caused by thyroid or adrenal imbalance can be treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. BHRT replenishes your thyroid and adrenal glands with biologically identical hormones.

Other possible fibromyalgia treatments include:

  • Medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Massage
  • Counseling
  • Stress and relaxation techniques
