Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a frustrating and little understood illness. It is called illness rather than a disease because there is no specific diagnostic test that confirms or denies its existence. It is a collection of confusing symptoms which come and go and vary intensity, without a known cause. Its chief characteristic is widespread pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons, stiffness, fatigue and non-restorative sleep. While it is not life-threatening, it is life changing. It is an illness which frustrates physicians as much as it does that patient.
It affects approximately 5-10% of the population, eight times more women are affected than men and it strikes all ages. It is often found in the company of other conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), spastic bladder (urge incontinence), headaches, migraines, chronic fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, numbness and tingling, cold sensitivity and others.
The classical diagnosis for FMS is pain in all four quadrants of the body that lasts longer than three months and 11 of 18 tender pressure points. Although the cause remains elusive, there are many common triggering events thought to precipitate the onset of the illness. These are an infection (viral or bacterial), an Accident or the development of another disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or hyperthyroidism.
Traditional treatments aim at improving the quality of sleep and reducing pain. Recent research confirms that a multidisciplinary approach to treating FMS provides the greatest relief from symptoms and the best prognosis. This approach includes improving quality of sleep, proper nutrition, physical conditioning, deep relaxation and positive mental imagery. No one modality has proven effective more than 40% of the time. However, by combing therapies you can frequently return to a healthier state, a more active lifestyle and a better quality of life.
