Among the multitude of diseases that exist, the ones that are most difficult to deal with are those that are difficult to diagnose or detect. It's important for people everywhere to learn as much as they can about the symptoms of these rare conditions so they can gain comfort and know their options before making decisions about their health. Fibromyalgia is currently one of the most commonly misdiagnosed diseases, so this blog will be exploring information about its most common symptoms.
Those at Risk
While Fibromyalgia does at times affect men, the majority of people who suffer from Fibromyalgia tend to be women. The women that are most affected are usually between the ages of 25 and 65. The wideness in the gap between ages has contributed to the difficulty in establishing common factors in the diagnosis of the disease.
Fibromyalgia syndrome is a condition when a set of symptoms appear together. Some of these symptoms will include: widespread pain through out the body, tenderness in certain areas, extreme fatigue, and difficulty sleeping. It is very common when struggling with these symptoms to experience great deal of anxiety or depression. This can develop due to not knowing when you'll experience the symptoms, or a flare of symptoms and becoming increasingly fearful of experiencing them.
Living with Fibromyalgia can present a host of challenges. Other symptoms can arise or pre-existed that cause great inconvenience to the person suffering. These can include: irritable bowel syndrome, irritable bladder, migraines, difficulty recalling information ("fibro fog"), numbness and tingling in the extremities.
Even though there is no current cure for Fibromyalgia, positive results have come about from mixing both traditional and natural medicinal techniques. These treatments have included medications, massage, exercise, and relaxation to help the body heal more efficiently.
