Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Fatigue, Always TiredIn the US alone, about 5 million people have fibromyalgia. To carry out daily activities, pain management is vital. Sleep disturbances, chronic pain, and cognitive difficult can affect quality of life for many sufferers.

Medications and lifestyle adjustments are usually the standard treatment fare. Some commonly prescribed medication ions include:

  • Anti-seizure medications - These medications, including Neurontin and Lyrica, may provide some pain relief.
  • Pain relievers  Most doctors will start patients on over-the-counter medications such as Advil, Tylenol, and Aleve. If these prove unsuccessful at pain management, prescription drugs such as tramadol may be considered.
  • Antidepressants –Cymbalta and other antidepressants may reduce pain and fatigue. Other medications such as Prozac may help with sleep problems.

Some of the recommended lifestyle adjustments are:

  • A Good Sleep Schedule – Fatigue is one of the main complaints of fibromyalgia patients. Going to be at the same time each night, not eating before bed, and cultivating a good sleep environment are important factors in care.
  • Regular Exercise  Due to pain, many fibromyalgia patients do not exercise. Mild to moderate exercises, however, can ultimately lessen pain. These include activities such as walking, using a stationary bike, or swimming.
  • Stress Management – Learning to manage stress can help keep fibromyalgia flare-ups to a minimum.

These lifestyle changes are important for the health and outlook of fibromyalgia patients. Another important component to a fibromyalgia treatment program is upper cervical chiropractic care. Why is this the case?
