Do you know that it is estimated that more than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, a condition that costs more than $600 billion each year in medical care and lost productivity? In fact, chronic pain affects more people than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.
Sadly, statistics indicate that between 80 to 90 percent of those diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women.
So what is fibromyalgia?
Initially thought by doctors to be a musculo-skeletal disorder, fibromyalgia is now classified as a disorder of the central nervous system. Studies indicate that fibromyalgia amplifies feelings of pain by altering the activity of those chemicals in the brain which are responsible for processing our pain signals.
Fibromyalgia, a medical condition characterized by chronic pain, exacerbated by fatigue, poor sleep and mental health problems, can lead to multiple tender points, muscle spasms and decreased energy levels.
People living with insomnia may also suffer an increased sensitivity to pain. Reduced pain tolerance mostly impacts those people who suffer from insomnia and sleep-related problems. This can mean that patients who experience sleep impairment and chronic pain also experience high medical costs and personal issues.
So, is there a more more effective, affordable way of treating fibromyalgia?
It seems that recent studies suggest that combining complementary treatments and better lifestyle choices with prescribed medication may help to improve the outcomes of fibromyalgia symptoms. These improvements can include greater pain relief, better physical function for an enhanced sense of well-being with less reliance on medication. This may also mean a reduced risk of unpleasant side-effects which are sometimes caused by prescription drugs.
As well as combining alternative treatments with conventional medical care, regular exercise is recommended as an essential part of treating your fibromyalgia symptoms.
