Trigger Point Injections and Fibromyalgia
There are some medical conditions that can negatively affect nearly every part of a patient’s life. Fibromyalgia is one such disorder. The symptoms of Fibromyalgia are both physical and psychological, and may include any of the following:
- Widespread Pain;
- Heightened Pain Response;
- Anxiety/Depression; and
- Memory/Cognitive Difficulties.
It’s particularly important for Fibromyalgia sufferers to find the right type of medical practitioner—one with a complete understanding of the neurological and musculoskeletal systems of the body. Physicians treating Fibromyalgia must also have insight into the emotional ramifications of the disease. For these reasons, a Physiatrist (a specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation) is often the physician of choice for many Fibromyalgia patients.
