It's estimated that 6 million to 8 million people (80 percent of whom are women) suffer with the pain of fibromyalgia. This chronic condition affects fibrous tissues in muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body.

Diagnosing Fibromyalgia Pain

There's no ignoring the widespread ache and exhaustion fibromyalgia can inflict. Yet, surprisingly, there are presently no laboratory tests to diagnose this disease. Due to this fact, fibromyalgia pain sufferers often undergo unnecessary medical exams, blood tests and X-rays in an attempt to identify the cause of their vague symptoms.

Generally, when pressure induced pain persists for more than three months in specific areas of the body, pain management doctors are able to confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

Causes of Fibromyalgia Pain

Fibromyalgia pain is thought to be produced by a combination of factors. These fibromyalgia factors include imbalances in brain and body chemistry. Disturbed sleep, a symptom of fibromyalgia, is also thought to be a cause.

Fibromyalgia Pain Problems

Though the degree of pain fibromyalgia can produce varies with individual sufferers, it's not progressive or debilitating. However, chronic fibromyalgia pain sets off a chain reaction of physical and mental side effects. The persistent stress of chronic fibromyalgia pain can affect the nervous and immune system. Coping with chronic fibromyalgia pain can also bring on depression and cause the brain to perceive even more pain.

Fibromyalgia Pain Management and Relief Treatments

The nerve pressure and inflammation, the basis for most fibromyalgia pain, usually subsides in a few weeks. And fortunately, fibromyalgia isn't associated with permanent damage. The most common fibromyalgia treatments used by doctors are surgery, medicine and natural pain management therapies aimed at reducing the pressure and inflammation of the nerve root.

Fibromyalgia Pain Management and Pain Relief Medications

A huge draw back of using medications for fibromyalgia pain relief and management is the risk of addiction over an extended period. Medications can't cure fibromyalgia pain, they're merely prescribed for the management of symptoms like inflammation, spasms and the side effects such as insomnia.

Besides the danger of addiction, continuous use of pain medications can create serious problems like digestive system and liver damage.

An Epidermal Steroid Injection is a step beyond orally administered fibromyalgia pain management medications. While used to relieve the pain of arthritis and other conditions, this approach is ineffective for fibromyalgia since it's not inflammatory.

Fibromyalgia Natural Pain Management and Pain Relief Therapies

Fortunately, alternative medicine professionals offer fibromyalgia pain sufferers the option of natural pain management and relief therapies without the risks of surgical and pharmaceutical approaches. Besides being more conservative than the medical establishment's methods, natural pain management is just as effective if not more so.
