Treating Fibromyalgia in West LA & Santa Monica
What Is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a painful chronic condition that is often misunderstood. According to the Mayo Clinic,
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.
It is thought that fibromyalgia amplifies pain signals throughout the body. The result is that patients feel frequent, widespread pain for no clear reason.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
It’s difficult to say why people get fibromyalgia. Sometimes, there is a triggering event—such as physical injury (especially neck injuries), certain types of arthritis, Lyme disease, or another medical problem. Other times, the cause is more mysterious, but suspected causes include muscle abnormalities, brain and hormone imbalances, and chronic sleep disturbance.
