Treatment for fibromyalgia usually involves a combination of medicine and self-care remedies meant to help patients manage symptoms. These measures will not cure fibromyalgia, but they can relieve pain and improve quality of life.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain throughout the body. According to the CDC, fibromyalgia affects about 4 million Americans every year (2% of the population). Anyone can be diagnosed with fibromyalgia, although symptoms usually appear in middle age. Women are twice as likely as men to have fibromyalgia.

The common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Musculoskeletal pain throughout the body
  • Stiffness
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep problems
  • Difficulty with memory, focus, and thinking
  • Headaches
  • Digestive problems
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet

There is no known cause of fibromyalgia, but doctors believe it may be caused by intense stress (such as PTSD or a car accident), medical conditions (such as viral infections), mood disorders, or genetics.

Fibromyalgia is usually diagnosed via a physical exam and blood tests to rule out similar conditions. There is no cure for fibromyalgia currently, but there are a number of treatment options available to help manage pain and reduce symptoms of the condition.
