If you need help with fatigue, joint pain, and chronic widespread pain, contact Center for Pain Management.

Fibromyalgia: Widespread Pain and Fatigue

Chronic joint pain and fatigue, sleep disturbances, and memory loss are all symptoms of fibromyalgia. No single test exists to confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, so pain management specialists may use several tests to rule out other conditions that could be causing chronic pain and fatigue.

When chronic pain is difficult to diagnose or treat, it can lead to anxiety and depression, and that can make symptoms worse. Many people with fibromyalgia also report that previous healthcare providers haven’t taken their symptoms seriously.

Center for Pain Management helps people with chronic pain feel better. If you have widespread pain and other symptoms, please contact us to ask about treatment options: (317) 706-7246.

Fibromyalgia Risk Factors

Factors or conditions that may raise the risk of fibromyalgia include:

  • Some types of infections
  • Arthritis
  • Physical trauma (such as injuries in a car accident)
  • Psychological stress
  • Family history of fibromyalgia

Women are more likely than men to develop this condition.


Fibromyalgia Treatment

Treatment for this condition may consist of anti-inflammatory or anti-seizure medications, nerve blocks, physical therapy, counseling, and dietary supplements. Ongoing treatment is usually the best way to control symptoms.
