Living with fibromyalgia can be difficult, and not just because the symptoms are often painful and limiting. Explaining fibro to anyone who has not experienced it can seem like an exercise in futility. The chronic illness is not understood well, even by the doctors who diagnose it. Most of the information the medical community has about fibro is based on studies of patients with the disease.
But even though there is no cure or treatment for fibromyalgia right now, these studies are giving doctors insight into how to treat symptoms to improve quality of life.
So what does this have to do with inflammation?
These studies are what have led some doctors to treat fibro as an inflammatory condition. Patients frequently have inflammatory symptoms such as:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Decreased immune system function
- Swelling redness or pain in various joints or parts of the body
- Stiff and swollen joints
- Swollen legs or feet
- Nerve pain
These symptoms are frequently treated with various anti-inflammatory medications developed for those specific purposes, yet there are no medications specifically for fibro.
