An article from PainPathways Magazine discusses how fibromyalgia and depression can go hand in hand. Fibromyalgia is defined as a chronic disorder characterized by widespread muscle pain, fatigue and tenderness in localized areas. As the article mentions, since depression and fibromyalgia can greatly interfere with your home and work life, it is important to openly discuss any symptoms of depression with your doctor.
This disorder doesn’t necessarily have to be debilitating or cause depression — there are various treatments to help ease the muscle pain and mange stress and anxiety. Our physicians at Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants are here to ensure our patients feel their very best. We always have one thing in mind – to help relieve and/or manage our patients’ pain so that they can lead the active lifestyle they deserve.
