Fibromyalgia Treatment Options Through Multi-Modality Treatment Approach
Fibromyalgia is a complicated syndrome that is characterized by wide spread body pain and stiffness. Fibromyalgia is derived from fibro (meaning fibrous tissues in Latin, myo meaning muscle in Greek and algos referring to pain in Greek).
It is a syndrome and not a disease since fibromyalgia is associated with a host of other symptoms such as increased fatigue, lack of sleep, difficulty in concentration, digestion problems, headaches, sensitivity to light, strong odors etc.
About one out of every 50 Americans are affected by fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia can affect both men and women but is more prevalent among women. It is still unclear as to what causes fibromyalgia.
Studies indicate that it takes an average of 5 years for a fibromyalgia patient to be accurately diagnosed. One of the reasons attributed to this statistic is that until lately fibromyalgia was not widely recognized in the medical community. Another reason is due to the complicated nature of fibromyalgia since the symptoms are similar to many other conditions like arthritis, lupus etc.
Fibromyalgia patients need a lot of empathy and support from family members, friends and colleagues at work. Since fibromyalgia patients suffer from intense body pain, they may not be able to continue in some occupations or will have to make special arrangements with their employer.
Even though there is no cure for fibromyalgia, experts say that it can be controlled by a multi-modality treatment approach. By combining conventional medication with alternative and complimentary treatment options, fibromyalgia can be more effectively treated.
