Managing Your Fibromyalgia Symptoms
Having a diagnosis of fibromyalgia can be daunting and overwhelming, but ensuring you’re fully armed with the facts on the condition and how to manage it can be very helpful. Finding a local support group or online forum can also be a helpful resource, along with our tips here, on managing sleep disturbances, muscle aches and a low mood.
Recent research has discovered that there could be a link between having fibromyalgia and the involvement of the immune system. This could be the starting point for more effective treatments and medications based on autoimmune diseases.
There’s also a promising new blood test in the pipeline that could diagnose fibromyalgia, taking the stress and upset over being heard and understood away from millions of sufferers in the future. As the condition is also thought to have genetic links, this could even help members of your own family.
If you have fibromyalgia, we hope these tips help, and if you’re struggling to get a diagnosis or treatment, we encourage you to keep pursuing your GP and other medical specialists until you do.
