We provide professional support in Fibromyalgia Treatment.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome that often coexists with
widespread muscle pain, sleep disturbance, and fatigue. It is a
musculoskeletal system disease with widespread pain, especially in the back,
neck, shoulders and hips. Although it can be seen in all ages and both
genders, it is most common in women between the ages of 25-55 and more in women
than in men.
It is a chronic disease that does not cause limitation of movement in the
joints but disrupts the quality of life of the person. Although the cause
of the disease is unknown, it is associated with many conditions such as
stress, anxiety, depression, heavy work pace, damp environment, sleep
disorders, and long-term computer use.
The signs and symptoms that make up the clinical picture in fibromyalgia
syndrome are very diverse. The main signs and symptoms are chronic
widespread pain and tender points in certain areas. Fatigue, sleep
disturbance, subjective swelling, numbness, dizziness, weakness are very common
symptoms of the disease.
Blood tests and radiological examinations give normal results. Fibromyalgia
is diagnosed by anamnesis and clinical examination.
In treatment, as in any disease, it is very important to inform and
educate the patient about the disease. The patient should be told that his
illness is “real”, but not a deforming or disabling illness. In
the treatment of fibromyalgia, pain medications, antidepressants, muscle
relaxants and sleep regulating drugs are used according to the patient’s
condition. Physical therapy agents and exercise programs, which have the
most important place in treatment, are applied. In addition, ozone
therapy, acupuncture and trigger point injections applied in our clinic are
also very effective in fibromyalgia.
