What is Fibromyalgia?
This condition is often misdiagnosed. Each person who has it will have their own set of symptoms. You could be diagnosed with fibromyalgia if you have widespread pain, lasting for three months or longer, heightened tenderness around the neck, shoulder, chest, hip, knee, and elbow, and abnormal or disturbed sleep patterns. Your doctor would have to complete a full set of tests and consider your family and medical history to rule out other causes.
Doctors still don't know what causes fibromyalgia, and symptoms can vary from mild to severe and may disappear for long periods and then reappear. Living with this level of pain and fatigue occasionally lead to psychological disorders such as anxiety and depression as well. The most common symptoms are:
- Increased sensitivity to pain
- Joint pain all over
- Chronic fatigue
- Brain fog or problems with memory and concentration
- Sleep issues
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Overactive bladder
- Swelling and numbness in the joints
- Tingling in the arms and legs
Regenerative medicine platelet-rich plasma injections (PRP) to treat your symptoms.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are another non-surgical therapy that stimulates your body’s natural healing forces. Concentrated platelets processed from your blood jump-start your healing mechanisms to address your symptoms naturally. The therapy involves injecting PRP in the source of your body pain and muscle aches, activating a mild inflammatory response to restore blood flow, new cell growth, and tissue regeneration.
