New Treatments for Fibromyalgia in Dubai

If you’re living with Fibromyalgia in Dubai, you’re not alone. With a growing prevalence of sufferers all over the world, Fibromyalgia has been getting increasing exposure but the facts are still a little blurry.
  • What Are The Symptoms?

    The key difference is that Fibromyalgia is not arthritis although it can present with arthritic symptoms. The main issue is widespread musculoskeletal pain that can be constant and interfere with a person’s ability to sleep, manage stress and get on with their daily lives.

    The time of day seems to be an important factor, as does activity levels, the weather and sleeping patterns. Pain is usually felt in the muscles and is combined with an insolvable fatigue. You may also experience tension headaches and migraines, abdominal problems, dizziness, and sensory issues.

    Fatigue in itself can be through lack of sleep, and be mild or more severe. Some people become exhausted and suffer from decreased endurance. Sleep can be light with frequent waking. This can lead to mood disorders, including depression with difficulty concentrating and there’s a link between Fibromyalgia and anxiety that is widely accepted.

  • How Can I Be Diagnosed?

    Head to your physician if you’ve been suffering from prolonged muscular pain and fatigue, especially if you’re a woman of childbearing age. Unfortunately, there’s no laboratory test for Fibromyalgia and your diagnosis will be based on your own history and a physical examination.

    Tender point sites are very important, and if you’re experiencing pain in at least 11 out of the 18 officially identified, it’s likely you will be diagnosed. Because of the difficulty in diagnosis, it’s extremely important to find a physician that knows enough about Fibromyalgia, or it can become a very long process.

  • Why Does Fibromyalgia Occur?
    As with most muscular or skeletal disorders, the cause is unknown, but some studies have linked emotional control, hormones, and infectious illnesses as being the precursor. Current research is looking into how abnormal levels of certain pain transmitting chemicals might be involved.
  • What Can I Do If I Have Fibromyalgia?

    Medications can ease the pain you are suffering, alongside doing regular exercises that stretch your muscles and help your cardiovascular health.

    Relaxation techniques have been shown to help a lot and by working with a knowledgeable physician you can develop a treatment plan that aids your particular symptoms. Living with Fibromyalgia in Dubai is manageable, don’t suffer alone.
