When a doctor diagnoses a patient with fibromyalgia, one may think it is primarily caused by genetics, infections and connective tissue diseases. However, the majority of cases are actually post-traumatic fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is a condition in which a person has permanent pain throughout the body. This causes tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons and other soft tissues. In addition to the pain fibromyalgia causes, it has also been linked to fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression and anxiety.
Doctors have linked post-traumatic fibromyalgia to traumatic events such as a motor vehicle accident, and work injuries.
Patients with fibromyalgia all seem to have a similar story. Before the trauma, patients were in good health with no previous ongoing pain. Typically, severe pain starts in their neck, shoulders and back areas. Although they may have undergone treatment, the pain remains.
There has been no cure for fibromyalgia. Although there are treatment programs for fibromyalgia patients, what works for some will not work for all. Even with treatments, the pain will never stop and it is a life-long battle for those who suffer from it.
Fibromyalgia can cause time away from work resulting in lost wages, high medical treatment bills and other expenses. If you suffer from any of these, as a result of a car wreck that was not your fault we can help.
