FIBROMYALGIA IS A PAIN
When over the counter pain relievers, physical therapy, and other lifestyle changes are not bringing you relief from chronic pain, you may have fibromyalgia.
How do I know if I have fibromyalgia?
- Chronic widespread pain
- Pain for at least three months
- Pain above and below the waist
- Pain on both sides of the body
- Pain in a combinations of areas like back and neck pain, shoulder pain and back pain, hips and knees or knees and feet
- You may also experience increased pain in response to normal physical contact
Unfortunately there are no known blood or imaging tests that can help in getting a fibromyalgia diagnosis. So landing on an accurate diagnosis is not always easy. That’s why it’s important to have a medical provider who will take more than five minutes to listen to you.
