Fibromyalgia FAQ

By Steve Joseph

What is fibromyalgia?

There is still relatively little known about fibromyalgia although the word means pain in the tendons, ligaments and muscles. Fibromyalgia pain is reported to affect the whole body, sometimes causing muscles to twitch or giving a burning sensation. The disease is more common among women than men and most sufferers agree that the symptoms resemble that of a bad flu virus or a post viral state. Experts in the field believe that chronic fatigue syndrome may be closely linked to fibromyalgia syndrome with some even concluding that they are in fact one and the same.

What causes fibromyalgia?
There is very little known about what causes fibromyalgia and furthermore the disease in general. Women tend to be more susceptible but the disease can occur in either men or women and at any age. More commonly fibromyalgia strikes women in their thirties and forties and doctors believe that the disease can be triggered by certain events. Car accidents, viral infections, arthritis, lupus and thyroid abnormalities are just a sample of the things that may be responsible for triggering fibromyalgia. People who develop fibromyalgia as a result of these events or diseases are described by doctors as having already been predisposed to the condition.

What are the treatments for fibromyalgia?
Treatment for fibromyalgia is usually home based tends to be focused upon reducing pain to manageable levels. This is done for two reasons; the first being in the interests of a patients comfort and the second, to allow for better sleep quality. Sleep is an integral part of the body's healing process as without deep sleep, tissue repair and immune function can be severely limited. There are a variety of drugs used to assist in the modulation of sleep, pain and immune function such as:

-cyclobenzaprine and -celexa

Other medications that may be used specifically to aid sleep include:
-clonazepam -trazodone

Where pain relief is concerned there is a vast array of medications available.
