Treatment options for fibromyalgia

Posted on March 18, 2015 2:28 pm under Medical Malpractice

Fibromyalgia is a chronic and painful condition that affects the body as a whole. It happens when the brain overreacts with pain signals, and can be triggered by physical trauma or emotional stress. Because of its general, non-suspecting symptoms, fibromyalgia has been among the most commonly misdiagnosed diseases, according to The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).

Determining what triggered fibromyalgia is considered the most effective way to deal with the disease. Preventing its causes would keep fibromyalgia symptoms at bay. However, for pain relief, doctors may recommend one or more of these medications:

  • Over the counter pain medications
  • Anti-seizure medications to deal with certain types of fibromyalgia pain
  • Antidepressants to ease pain and promote sleep

Obtaining proper fibromyalgia treatments requires an accurate fibromyalgia diagnosis. Unfortunately, many health professionals veer on the side of negligence and tend to overlook the possibility of this disease.
