Don't Let Fibromyalgia Control Your Life

Are you one of the four million American adults who suffer from fibromyalgia? While your symptoms can be debilitating, you should know they can be managed with the right treatment and care.

At Pain Relief Solutions in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, double board-certified anesthesiologist and interventional pain management physician, Dr. Neel Amin, and the rest of our team offer conservative, interventional treatments for your fibromyalgia.

Let’s first talk about its symptoms.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia

The common signs of fibromyalgia are easy to recognize. They include:

You might also notice numbness or tingling in your hands or feet, symptoms of temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), and issues with digestion that include constipation, bloating, and even irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

How fibromyalgia develops

Although the cause of fibromyalgia isn’t known, researchers believe its development can come from:

When abnormal chemical increases occur in your brain, they can signal pain to your body. Your brain receptors can develop a familiar pattern of memory that can cause it to overreact to nonpainful signals.

Diagnosing your fibromyalgia

If you suffer from chronic symptoms for at least three months, we can accurately diagnose your condition. Typically, your pain occurs in these areas:

Your physical exam includes learning your family history, checking for tender points in your body, finding out if your pain is sharp or dull, understanding the frequency of your pain, and talking with you about your level of energy and clear-mindedness.

Management of your fibromyalgia

Although the pain of fibromyalgia can cause issues, Dr. Amin and our team can treat it with an integrative approach to help you feel better. We aim to identify your trigger points that cause the pain so we can help prevent it before it occurs.

Our treatments may include:

Medication

We might recommend treating the chemical imbalance in your brain with medication to stop pain signals from getting to your brain.

Other therapies

To relieve your pain, we offer holistic and integrative approaches, such as yoga, acupuncture, physical therapy, cold laser therapy, and therapeutic massage. We may also recommend transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, using low voltage electrical currents to relieve your pain.

Depending on the severity of your fibromyalgia, we may recommend occipital nerve stimulation, which is a surgical procedure, using electrical stimulation to block your pain signals. We monitor your progress if you choose this option.

If you suffer from fibromyalgia, reach out to Dr. Amin and our team by calling 954-900-1789 today, or request your appointment online. You can also send us a message if you have any questions, concerns, or comments.
