What is fibromyalgia, and how is it diagnosed?

As one of the most common types of chronic pain disorders, fibromyalgia is estimated to affect between 5 million and 10 million people in the U.S., and as many as 6 percent of the world’s total population. Although fibromyalgia affects both men and women, more than 75 percent of sufferers are females who are diagnosed between the age of 30 and 40.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia:

In addition to widespread pain, patients also report long-term fatigue, disturbed sleep and mood swings. Additional symptoms associated with fibromyalgia can vary greatly, ranging from neck pain, tension headaches, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive problems, low back pain, sciatica, anxiety, depression, restless legs syndrome, and insomnia.

Traditional treatment options for fibromyalgia:

Medications, self-care, and alternative treatments are all used to treat patients who suffer from fibromyalgia. Medications include over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), and naproxen (Aleve). Your doctor may prescribe an antidepressant such as Cymbalta or Savella to ease the pain and fatigue associated with the disease. Anti-seizure medications such as Gabapentin and Lyrica are also commonly prescribed to fibromyalgia sufferers.
