Living With Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia, one of the most common chronic pain conditions, affects more than 10 million people in the United States. This musculoskeletal pain disorder is primarily found in women, accounting for 75-90% of all documented cases. Fibromyalgia diagnosis has been shown to increase with age, with the median age of diagnosis being between 20-50 years.
Medical research has found fibromyalgia most often develops after a physically traumatic or psychological event. There has been no single causative factor associated with a fibromyalgia diagnosis.
The pain associated with fibromyalgia has often been described as an overall widespread pain, lasting anywhere from weeks to months. People suffering from fibromyalgia also commonly report feeling tired after a full nights sleep. Difficulty concentrating and focusing also affects many with the disorder.
Fibromyalgia has also been found to co-exist with other painful conditions; migraine headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, painful bladder syndrome and TMJ.
People diagnosed with fibromyalgia have a variety of treatment options available. Medication is often used for treatment, but like any pharmaceutical it often comes with unwanted side effects. Thankfully patients with fibromyalgia have other alternative therapies that have shown extremely beneficial in decreasing symptoms and frequency of episodes. The Myers Cocktail, a multi-vitamin IV hydration infusion, has been found to make a significant impact on fibromyalgia severity.
At 61Five Health & Wellness our fibromyalgia patients have found improved relief with monthly Myers Cocktail infusions through IV therapy. Our infusions are brief and efficient, generally taking less than 30 min. Our IV hydration clinic in Nashville is open 7 days a week and walk-ins are always welcome.
