National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that has been around for centuries but only named in 1981. As late as 1990 it was defined as a musculoskeletal disease within the family of arthritis.
The word “myalgia” means pain within the muscles. Fibro refers to fibrous tissues.
Fibromyalgia is caused by abnormal sensory processing in the central nervous system. If you have this disease you experience most commonly a sense of fatigue, difficulty sleeping and concentrating, irritable bowel syndrome and often headaches.
Your pain will be on both sides and the top and bottom of your body. People all over the world suffer from this, all ages and either sex. Reports do say however, that women are seven times more likely to come down with it. It is chronic in nature.
Unfortunately you will not find a cure for Fibromyalgia but there are ways to manage the pain. You should check with your medical professional to see what is best for you.
There are medications, exercises, relaxation techniques and antidepressants. Antidepressants can help you relieve pain and promote better sleep.
An early sufferer of this disease is believed to be Florence Nightingale!
Private Home Health Care wants to help to share awareness of this difficult disease so that you are aware that you are not alone and there is help available.
