Improved pain management can be achieved through the appropriate use of medication (pharmacotherapy), injections (interventional therapy) and psychotherapy (both one to one psychotherapy and group pain management).
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition characterized by widespread body pain which can manifest as muscle pains and skin hypersensitivity. Other characteristic features of fibromyalgia are symptoms of extreme tiredness and fatigue.
Fibromyalgia is a long term condition which requires appropriate medical management. Sadly, a cure is often elusive.
Long term management includes appropriate exercise and rehabilitation therapy, psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy.
