Fibromyalgia Q & A
What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain in your body. Although scientists don’t completely understand what causes fibromyalgia, studies seem to show that this condition heightens your body’s pain sensations.
Fibromyalgia affects around 4 million adults across the US. It’s more common in women than men. In some cases, this condition develops immediately after a traumatic incident like a surgery or an accident. In others, the symptoms arise gradually.
What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia symptoms are far-reaching. The primary symptom is widespread pain and stiffness, which you may feel throughout your body. In addition to pain, fibromyalgia can cause:
- Fatigue and sleep problems
- Cognitive problems
- Memory problems
Many people with fibromyalgia also live with separate conditions that increase their pain, including:
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Interstitial cystitis
Clearly, fibromyalgia can have a significant, detrimental effect on your life. That’s why the entire team at Summit Pain Alliance is dedicated to taking a unique, personalized approach to fibromyalgia. Their goal is to bring you as much relief as possible as quickly as possible.
