What is Fibromyalgia?
Many people wonder: is Fibromyalgia real? Fibromyalgia is an extremely debilitating and sometimes disabling condition. The patient feels pain in the whole body for relatively long periods of time: it may affect sensibility on the articulations, muscles, tendons and other soft tissues. Along with the pain, Fibromyalgia also causes fatigue that may be chronic, sleep disorders, headache, depression and even anxiety.
The causes of fibromyalgia, to this day, are unknown. However, many factors are frequently associated to this condition:
- Genetics: Fibromyalgia is very recurrent in people whose family medical history already shows the condition. This could be an indicator of the existence of some genetic mutations capable of causing this syndrome;
- Infections through viruses or autoimmune disease could also be involved in causing Fibromyalgia;
- Simple sleep disorders, a sedentary lifestyle, anxiety or depression could also be linked to some forms of the condition;
- A physical or emotional trauma, like stress, could trigger fibromyalgia as well.
With persistent pain, the patient needs to visit a rheumatologist. The specialist performs a Fibromyalgia Test on the patient who will manifest about 11 or 18 spots in which it will show at least muscular pain (Fibromyalgia symptoms checklist). Before the doctor can diagnose the condition, however, he has to rule out any other condition like, for example, simple rheumatic pain or sleep disorders: studies show 18 different Fibromyalgia Trigger Points in the human body that characterize the syndrome by manifesting pain or hypersensitivity at the touch or the pressure.
Research and scientific data
A consistent therapy plan developed entirely by Doctor Domenico Biasi and his task force.
Studies have been slowly progressing all around the world, with poor to no results; normally, the treatment plans offer drug therapy aimed to reduce the pain. In Italy, we have an historic tradition on rheumatology research, and since always we have been one of the leading countries in the treatment of these conditions. That’s why we also are first in the world efficiently treating Algodistrophy (RSD CRPS); the same Doctors who masters the CRPS Neridronate treatment have been working hard for years on assembling the right team of specialized professionals, with the ambition to find a solid treatment for Fibromyalgia. The treatment is now available, and Medical Tourism Italy is ready to allow international patients to access this durable treatment plan.
