Dr. Jalil Khan, MD Reports on Fibromyalgia
According to Dr. Jalil Khan, MD, Fibromyalgia is a serious medical condition marked by intolerance to pressure on the skin, extensive muscle and joint pain, abnormal sleep patterns, depression, and general fatigue. While there is currently no cure for this disorder, ongoing Fibromyalgia research has resulted in new medications that, in conjunction with lifestyle modification, have had a positive impact in lessening the severity of symptoms for Dr Khanís Fibromyalgia patients.
Without the presence of a laboratory test for diagnosis, Fibromyalgia is commonly misdiagnosed. Physicians have only the patientís report of symptoms at their disposal in order to identify Fibromyalgia; doctors often will test for many other illnesses before diagnosing Fibromyalgia. The NFA (National Fibromyalgia Association) estimates that diagnosing Fibromyalgia typically takes five years. Dr Jalil Khan, MD has extensive knowledge in the latest theories and findings on Fibromyalgia. His patients receive a quick and accurate diagnosis, without unnecessary testing for other, non-existent illnesses.
Dr. Jalil Khan, MD realizes that many patients become discouraged after receiving a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. While there is currently no cure, Dr Khan assures his patients that the symptoms of Fibromyalgia are treatable. Recent scientific findings have shown atypical neurological pain processing in Fibromyalgia patients, which has led to the availability of new prescription medicines that combat Fibromyalgia pain. Cymbalta and Lyrica, for example, are two of the newest treatment options that have shown significant improvement in Fibromyalgia pain.
Dr. Khan recognizes that anti-pain medicine is only one piece of the Fibromyalgia care regimen. Other vital elements in Fibromyalgia management include dietary modification, stress reduction, and the addition of moderate, low impact exercise into the patientís everyday schedule. While many Fibromyalgia sufferers may cringe at the idea of exercise, Dr Jalil Khan asserts that it is necessary to strengthen muscles and prevent joint stiffness. Mild exercise can also improve depression and sleep patterns, which are common symptoms of the disorder.
Each Fibromyalgia case is different; each patient experiences symptoms differently, and therefore responds differently to treatment options. In this regard, Dr. Jalil Khan works with his Fibromyalgia patients to create a unique treatment plan that is consistent with the individual needs of each patient.
