The role of the GP is very important in excluding other illnesses and referral to a secondary care physician may be necessary. We acknowledged that, on a very general level, the information The Fibro Guy had provided showed that there could be value in using a multi-disciplinary approach to managing chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia, which included elements such as exercise, education and psychological techniques. Your doctor may recommend a course of acupuncture from a trained NHS healthcare professional, such as a physiotherapist, to help with your pain. These sessions are often led by psychologists who specialise in helping people find ways to live with their pain.

The biggest issue for the care given to this patient group, I find, is that their condition is managed in a ‘disjointed’ ‘symptom by symptom’ approach, which increases their waiting times and [reduces] their quality of life in the meantime. Low levels of skill and confidence to diagnose fibromyalgia among healthcare professionals, in particular general practitioners, was reported, along with missed opportunities to instigate early self-management because of delayed diagnosis.We considered medication was likely to have a place in the management of chronic pain for a significant proportion of patients. RS happens when the brain is activated from a pair of identical stimuli, for example two loud bleeps about a second apart.

Codes were organised and grouped into categories, and subthemes and themes were developed using the constant comparative method [ 24, 25]. Physiotherapy is a favourable method to help reduce the symptoms that are associated with fibromyalgia. Poor sleep appears to be a significant cause of fibromyalgia, so getting enough good-quality sleep is an important part of your treatment.For example, some may have mobility problems due to dizziness, or balance issues or find chores and personal care exhausting. They said they deliberately referred to “supporting those with chronic pain and hypermobility” rather than “treating”. Symptoms often begin after an event, such as physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. Some fibromyalgia patients may also suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome / myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS / ME). If you have fibromyalgia, support groups can provide an important network for talking to others living with the condition.

Fibromyalgia might be known as a chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain syndrome but patients with fibromyalgia do not just suffer from muscle or joint pains. Your symptoms and general health can be improved by a combination of aerobic exercise and movements that improve your flexibility and strength. The NHS is still separating mental and physical health where fibromyalgia needs a combined approach. Some gentle exercises may help reduce muscle tension, but it’s probably best to avoid energetic exercise too close to bedtime.The brain, within a split second, decides that the 2nd stimulus is the same as the 1st stimulus, and can represent it in our consciousness more efficiently. One person living with fibromyalgia commented that since being diagnosed with the illness, any issue they developed was “… almost always … blamed on my fibro” (B-246). I am] fortunate to have some private healthcare insurance that was taken out many years before diagnosis [of fibromyalgia]. The Fibro Guy had not mentioned the role of medication in their response but we considered many patients would obtain it separately. They can provide specific treatments or rehabilitation therapies that could reduce the effects of fibromyalgia.
