Fibromyalgia is very painful and is chronic disease that affects the musculoskeletal system in the body. The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia may be intermittent or constantly present. The reason fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose is because of it is variable symptoms and patients need to seek a doctor who is specialized in doing this such as chiropractor or orthopaedic physician which we provide at our medical office.
Many signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia are similar to those caused by other joint, muscular or immune system disorders, so diagnosis is typically a long and frustrating process and needs to be diagnosed by a physician or a chiropractor.
