Fibromyalgia in Lexington

Chiropractic Lexington KY Neck Pain

Fibromyalgia is a disease that impacts the muscles and soft tissues in your body. Most known for causing widespread pain in people, this disease effects about four million adults in the United States. This nature of this disease can make it difficult to diagnose, which can lead to misdiagnosis and treatment for many people. But, dealing with this on your own can impact your quality of life by causing you to miss work and activities. Chiropractors in Lexington are here to help you live a pain free life.

What are symptoms?

Fibromyalgia’s most common symptom is widespread pain in the body. But, that’s not the only symptom. Other indicators of this disease are:

  • Fatigue and energy loss
  • Cognitive issues like memory loss (also called “fibro fog”)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic headaches and migraines
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Tingling or numbness in the arms, hands, feet, and toes
  • Pain points on the body
  • Trouble sleeping

How is fibromyalgia diagnosed?

Because many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia are kind of general, or indicators of other diseases, this disease is often misdiagnosed. There’s also no blood test or scan that can diagnose fibromyalgia. Usually fibromyalgia is diagnosed if a person has widespread pain for a period of three months or longer and has at least 11 of 18 tender points upon examination. Your doctor may also order testing such as blood work to rule out other disease as the cause of your pain.

Who is at risk of developing fibromyalgia?

Though fibromyalgia can impact anyone, there are certain characteristics that can put you at increased risk of developing the disease. They include:

  • Family history of fibromyalgia
  • Obesity
  • Being a woman- women are more likely to develop the disease
  • Experiencing a traumatic event
  • Repeat injuries
  • Have Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis

There is no cure for fibromyalgia…or is there?

There is no medical cure for fibromyalgia. However, integrative doctors see patients liberated from the pain of fibromyalgia all the time.  Finding the root cause of the pain and overactive nervous system is how they get these amazing results.  Every patient with fibromyalgia has a different root cause. Comprehensive testing is the key to getting the best results possible. Our doctors will do a complete exam and history to determine what the best testing is for each individual case.

Common tests to find your root cause:

  • Stool sample
  • Hormone testing
  • Adrenal testing
  • Immune markers
  • Mold and lyme testing
  • X-rays
  • Viral panel
  • Inflammatory panel
  • Cardio metabolic assessment
  • Food allergies
