The Age-Old Question: What Is Fibromyalgia?
More than 5 million Americans are affected by fibromyalgia. But what is fibromyalgia and how can you manage its related symptoms?
With a chronic disease, usually the question is what drug will work best. Most diseases don’t have just one stop pill for a quick fix, though, and fibromyalgia’s not an exception.
In addition to your medication, have a place where you can relax, since reducing your stress can also reduce your pain. Create a schedule and stick to it for exercising and sleeping.
It is easy to stop exercise if you just plan to walk for 30 minutes every day. If you have a goal to achieve each week, you’ll have something to work towards. May each week you set a goal to go an extra mile. Having multiple means of helping your symptoms will improve your quality of life.
