Fibromyalgia

Overview:

Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep and cognitive disturbances, and tenderness in the body. This condition affects the muscles and soft tissue, making daily tasks challenging for those affected. Unfortunately, there is no cure for fibromyalgia, but there are ways to help control symptoms, such as medications, therapy, and trigger point injections.

Symptoms:

Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Widespread musculoskeletal pain, such as a constant dull ache
  • Fatigue 
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Irregular sleep patterns
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Difficulties with memory and concentration, known as “fibro-fog

Causes:

The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unclear. However, scientists suggest that fibromyalgia is a problem with central pain processing in the brain. Other people with fibromyalgia have also reported various things that may have triggered or caused their condition. These can include:

  • Genes
  • A stressful, traumatic physical or emotional event
  • Repetitive injuries
  • Central nervous system (CNS) problems
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Other diseases, such as arthritis or an infection

Treatment:

While there is currently no cure for fibromyalgia, one may be able to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life with medications, self-care strategies, and lifestyle changes. At Center Pain, we offer trigger point injections, a gold standard for the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome (MPS).

We understand that each patient’s pain is unique. Therefore, the treatment recommended to each patient will be personalized to fit their condition and lifestyle. Our multi-disciplinary team of physicians offers advanced interventional and minimally-invasive techniques to help treat chronic, complex pain.
