Fibromyalgia is not a well-known disorder to the people and medical experts.
It is considered as proper syndrome and has affected large number of people; still the clear identification of symptoms and cure processes is not available. Even medical experts have a very particular set of information.
Some things are really clear and provide an ease to diagnose the problem. Self-awareness about the disorder is really important that can be achieved by proper information and hopefully this piece of writing will help people a lot to understand this disease and circumstances related to it.
Some really important things that everybody (not only the patients) should know are listed below:
1- Chronic pain
The most important and prominent symptom of the disorder is pain. When all four quadrants of the body feel painful and the pain lasts for at least three months, 11 out 18 pressure points give sensation of pain; there is high possibility of the disorder. Along with pain patient will also suffer fatigue, insomnia, Restless Leg Syndrome, anxiety, depression.
2- Healthy Diet for Healthy Life
Having healthy and balanced meals not only keep you fit but away from a number of disorders and ailments. Bad eating habits like having late night meals, highly saturated diets, junk and fast foods, high proportion of caffeine, alcohols, additives and sweets lead to destructive harms and disorders including fibromyalgia. Healthy foods like vegetables, fresh fruits, fish, salmon, salads, meat not only provide essential nutrients but keep you fit and active.
3- Long Diagnosis Process
The medical professional has to take a number of examinations and inquiries in order to diagnose the disorder. As many of the symptoms overlap with symptoms of other diseases so a longer period is required for clear diagnosis of the problem. There are certain cases when this disorder is confused with other due to similarity in the symptoms.
4- Medical Category
For a long time it was considered to be a mental disorder but recent studies falsify this thought.. Now the medical experts agreed on the fact that it is a real disease and its pain can be unbearable and harmful.
Some medical researchers believe that Fibromyalgia is caused due to neuron-chemical unbalances in the human brain which, in their turn which leads to weak sensation of pain process in the brain. The mystery how these unbalances occur is still to be solved.
5- Control Your Stress Levels
Everything is on its fast mode nowadays. Beside the comforts of fast technology, the problems and risk factors have also increased rapidly. The rapid growth of technology has lead to the rapid stress development and lack of temperament. But this fact is still unknown to large number of people that increased stress not only disturbs the peace of mind but also the physical health.
Diabetes and blood pressure problems are all the results of stress. Relaxation and soothing therapies have become the need of the hour.
6- Natural Remedies
Mostly people don’t believe in natural and hygiene lifestyle and remedies in order to fight against serious issues. But it has proved that nature has always blessed human with a comfort zone. Yoga, meditation, healthy natural diet has always helped man in maintaining a healthy and balanced life.
7- Stomach issues
Nutrition and proper digestion is essential for good health. Stomach issues may or may not be directly related to bad nutrition, but mostly the patients suffering Fibromyalgia show signs of stomach disorder along with the feeling of fatigue. A set of examination has to be performed and deep analysis needs to be done in order to clarify that the stomach issues are linked to fibromyalgia or not.
8- Bad fitness
