Fibromyalgia Treatment

By January 18, 2018July 14th, 2023No Comments

Fibromyalgia causes chronic, sporadic pain throughout the body and joints, along with neurological symptoms like memory problems, depression and sleep disruption. Pain and other symptoms come and go, worse on some days than others. To help you deal with the unpredictability of fibromyalgia, it is helpful try to identify (and avoid) your triggers.

Common Causes of a Fibromyalgia Flare

To prevent a fibro flare-up, try your best to avoid:

  • Random Sleep Schedule: To keep fibromyalgia at bay, get in the habit of going to bed at a certain time each night and waking about the same time everyday—even on weekends. Wind down your activities well before going to bed.
  • Anxiety and Stress: Stress can quickly bring on physical pain. Remaining calm, avoiding stressful situations when possible, and easing your stress when it occurs, will help you avoid a fibromyalgia flare-up.
  • Fatigue: Try not to push yourself, don’t over-do work and be sure to get regular, moderate physical exercise. Try for a good work-life balance and consider yoga or meditation to improve your quality of life with fibromyalgia.
  • Injury: When you have fibromyalgia, an injury can make your fibro symptoms worsen. So try to take care of yourself when recovering from an injury. Follow all your doctor’s instructions so that you can recover as quickly and uneventfully as possible.
  • Weather Extremes: Dress appropriately for cold temperatures and try to avoid humidity. Use a dehumidifier and stay in a comfortable indoor environment when possible.
