Atlanta Fibromyalgia Treatment
Fibromyalgia is not a disease, but rather a syndrome where the patient suffers from long term body pain including pain in the muscles, joints, tendons, and soft tissues. It is also a cause for restlessness, incomplete sleep, anxiety, depression and also variations in bowel movements. It is also known as fibrositis.
This is one of the most common diseases and this effects muscle which leads to acute chronic pain and also disability. These painful tissues lead to other complications when they are not treated on time. But, this does not cause any other damage to other body organs associated with it. The main cause for fibromyalgia is not known, but scientists are trying to track the reason for this syndrome. The patients suffering with fibromyalgia have been associated with stress, trauma and infection. The patients associated with this syndrome have an impaired non-rapid eye movement and is peculiar in this case.
This syndrome is often seen in women, more than 80% of women are affected and it is usually seen between 30 to 60 years of age. It is very rare to see this syndrome in men, children and the elderly. Sometimes this syndrome is associated with other diseases like arthritis. The prevalence of this disease is reported mostly in the United States and England. There are no methods to prevent this syndrome, but by regular exercise, stress reduction and proper medical treatment we can cure fibromyalgia.
