Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that creates widespread muscle pain and causes tender points and swelling in the joints. Because the pain is widespread, patients may also experience constant fatigue, insomnia, headaches, and anxiety or depression. Although doctors are unsure why fibromyalgia occurs, certain biological factors, such as your family’s health history, gender, and previous medical conditions, may trigger the painful symptoms. It can also develop in patients who experience trauma or infection, but usually, there is not one specific health event that triggers a fibromyalgia attack.

Because fibromyalgia pain can affect multiple areas of the body, the symptoms can greatly impact your quality of life and prevent you from participating in activities that you love. Thanks to medical advancements, our group provides many treatment options to help manage your pain long-term. Generally, our group will start by recommending more conservative methods, like physical therapy. However, depending on your condition, we may prescribe anti-seizure medication because of the proven results it has with patients who suffer from fibromyalgia. During your consultation, we will complete a full evaluation of your condition and recommend a long-term treatment plan that best meets your health preferences, needs, and concerns.
