Fibromyalgia is a condition that affects the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. It can include a wide range of symptoms, including insomnia, fatigue, muscle pain and tender points or trigger points on the neck, shoulders, hips, arms, legs and trunk. Headaches, morning stiffness, tingling in the extremities and memory problems can also occur. Lifestyle changes, stress management techniques and medications may all be recommended to help alleviate symptoms. Our pharmacy in the Westlake Village area can work with you and your doctor to create a treatment plan that works for you.
About 5 million Americans over the age of 18 are believed to have fibromyalgia. While it predominantly affects women, men and children are also at risk. It tends to be more common in those with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus or a family history of the condition. Although it can interfere with your daily functioning and overall quality of life, treatments are available. Eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly and practicing good sleep hygiene can all be beneficial. Taking medications exactly as prescribed is also important for treating fibromyalgia.
