Fibromyalgia

What kind of disorder is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a real condition characterized by life-disrupting symptoms. It includes musculoskeletal pain throughout your body, often accompanied by fatigue, memory, and mood issues. This combination of symptoms can become debilitating to those living with fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia affects more women than men, and most women are middle-aged when the condition arises. Sometimes, symptoms begin after trauma, surgery, or illness. There is not always a clear cause, and fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed. Experts believe fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.


What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia symptoms are often mistaken for other conditions and usually include some combination of the following:

  • Fatigue
  • Memory problems
  • Muscle tenderness
  • All-over body aches
  • Chronic headaches
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Stiffness or numbing in joints
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sensitivity to loud noise or bright lights


How do doctors diagnose fibromyalgia?

There are no specific lab tests to confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. People who experience typical symptoms for more than three months should seek the advice of a specialist. The experienced integrative medical team at Revive Medical may rule out other conditions with similar symptoms by requesting a variety of bloodwork or other lab tests to determine how your body is functioning overall.

Once they have determined the cause of your pain and discomfort, your expert care team focuses on relieving your fibromyalgia symptoms naturally. They discuss the integrative therapies available to you to begin the healing process, including innovative low level light therapy.


What is low level light therapy?

Low level light therapy (LLLT) increases blood flow and helps reduce inflammation. It can help some adults with fibromyalgia through the healing process by decreasing pain. LLLT is a noninvasive process using laser light that helps your body’s ability to heal, thus alleviating chronic, painful symptoms.


What cures fibromyalgia?

There is no cure for fibromyalgia, but the experts at Revive Medical offer a variety of integrative treatments that focus on helping you feel better while eliminating symptoms. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medications, the specialists offer a more comprehensive treatment plan.
