Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that can impact on many areas of a person’s life. So, when faced with this condition, it is critical to find the right fibromyalgia pain relief options.

Fibromyalgia is not a disease, rather it is a chronic condition that is characterized by many different debilitating symptoms. Historically it has often been misdiagnosed due to the nature of the varying symptoms, however, many within the medical community are now recognizing this condition.

Fibromyalgia effects around 5% of the population and there are approximately 6 million Americans suffering from this painful and frustrating condition.

Fibromyalgia can disrupt a normal lifestyle with constant muscle and joint pains. These can also be accompanied by migraines, sleep disturbances, irritable bowel syndrome, fatigue and what has been termed as ‘brain fog’; having a lack of mental clarity. Sufferers’ experience varying degrees of severity with their symptoms and although the body doesn’t seem to be physically effected the condition can lead to progressively worsening pain.

Without doubt, fibromyalgia is one problem that you cannot ignore. However, at present, there is no one solution that will make fibromyalgia disappear from the body. Tackling fibromyalgia involves many different treatments and it may be a case of trial and error to find the ones that are effective for you.

Your first port of call should be your doctor for a formal diagnosis and once that has been given they will suggest some form of treatment to help you cope with the symptoms. Here’s a brief overview of some of the ways to help address the pain associated with Fibromyalgia.

1. Pain Relievers

There are over-the-counter medications that anybody can purchase to relieve any body pains. These are generic medications that are normally used for muscle pains, and they can help in relieving pain temporarily. However, as the symptoms can be constant it may be better to seek medications that will have a long-term effect.

2. Specific Medications

It is also an option to take drugs that will address the problem in a different way. There are drugs that can aid in pain management by modifying the emotions felt. This will help in minimizing the attention directed to pain. Some people also make use of drugs that block the pain impulses. This ensures that the painful feeling in the muscles and joins is not communicated to the brain. Speak to your doctor to have a specific medicine prescribed.

3. Herbal remedies

If traditional medications aren’t providing you with results you are after or you’re reluctant to take medications for prolonged periods you can try some alternative treatments.

As fibromyalgia is such a complex condition it pays to experiment with different treatment options to find a combination that works for you. However, ensure you tell your doctor what other methods you are trying incase they interfere with your prescribed meds.

Herbal remedies are an option and many sufferers have reported significant improvements from utilizing them.

Herbal remedies are commonly used to treat depression, muscle and joint pain, sleep disorders, fatigue and immune system deficiencies.

Ensure that you find a qualified homeopath to guide you through the treatments.

4. Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is one of the oldest treatment therapies and has been used for 1000’s of years. It can be an effective form of pain relief for fibromyalgia sufferers.

You can try icing the effected joint/s by placing ice wrapped in a towel on the joint for 20 minutes every 2 hours to reduce inflammation. Hot or cold towel compresses can increase circulation, helping relieve muscle and joint pain. Or you can try hot or cold baths to see which bring you the most relief.

5. Healthy Exercises

Doing gentle exercises, like yoga or tai chi, can also help in pain management. This is a good way to relieve the body of the stress brought about by fibromyalgia. It can also help in spiritual development. Make sure you tell your instructor about your condition so they can adapt the exercises if necessary.

By incorporating alternative and traditional treatment options into your life you can really make a difference in achieving sustained fibromyalgia pain relief.

    Hi Kholoud - I’m glad you’re finding the information helpful!

    Brain fog is something that many fibro (and other chronic pain) sufferers experience. It can be described as having trouble concentrating, unable to organise thoughts clearly, confusion and short term memory loss.

    If you’re suffering from these symptoms it would be worthwhile discussing the use of Co Co-enzyme Q10 or Gingko Biloba.
