Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a complex condition that can be difficult to diagnose and treat and can significantly impact a person’s quality of life. At CoreMed Plus, we offer comprehensive screening and diagnostic services for fibromyalgia and a range of treatment options to help manage the condition and improve overall health and wellness.
Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread pain and tenderness in the body’s muscles, joints, and soft tissues. Other common symptoms include fatigue, sleep disturbances, headaches, cognitive difficulties (often called “brain fog”), and mood disturbances such as anxiety and depression. These symptoms can be debilitating and significantly impact a person’s ability to function in daily life.
Diagnosing fibromyalgia can be challenging, as no specific tests or biomarkers can definitively confirm the presence of the condition. Diagnosis is typically based on a combination of a patient’s reported symptoms, physical examination, and ruling out other potential causes of similar symptoms. At CoreMed Plus, our healthcare professionals have experience and expertise in diagnosing fibromyalgia and ruling out other conditions that may present with similar symptoms.
Once a diagnosis is made, treatment for fibromyalgia typically involves a combination of medications, lifestyle modifications, and alternative therapies. Our team at CoreMed Plus works closely with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan that considers their unique needs, symptoms, and goals. We utilize a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, incorporating conventional medical treatments and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, massage therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Medications commonly used to treat fibromyalgia include pain relievers, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants. Lifestyle modifications such as regular exercise, stress reduction techniques, and maintaining a healthy sleep schedule can also effectively manage symptoms. Alternative therapies such as acupuncture and massage therapy may also help reduce pain and promote relaxation.
At CoreMed Plus, we are committed to providing comprehensive, personalized care to each of our patients with fibromyalgia. We understand this condition’s impact on a person’s life and work to provide practical, compassionate care to help manage symptoms and improve overall health and wellness.
