At The Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins, we understand how misdiagnosed and often alienating this disease can be and we pride ourselves on our ability to help these patients find the answers– and relief– they’ve been seeking for years.
Chronic pain is the dominating symptom of Fibromyalgia. In most people it affects the entire body, although it may start in one area – such as the neck and shoulders – and spread to other areas over a period of time.
The name, Fibromyalgia, means: pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the tissues and tendons), and is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue.
You may be experiencing moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion that results from the flu or lack of sleep. Sometimes the fatigue is more of a problem than the pain.
Headaches, especially tension and migraine headaches, are common in Fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating, alternating constipation, bladder spasms, and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency.
Your skin and blood circulation can be sensitive to temperature changes, resulting in temporary changes in skin color.
No matter how long you have been dealing with Fibromyalgia, it’s too long. Some people suffer only minor symptoms, while others feel the debilitating effects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life– making even simple daily activities almost impossible.
We know our Fibromyalgia care program can help you find relief and and start living a life free of pain and filled with vitality!
