Most people with fibromyalgia suffer from chronic fatigue. Doctors believe that this could be due to a viral infection and sleep disorders, hormonal injustices and many other similar situations. Chronic fatigue is the feeling you feel when you are really exhausted. You feel overwhelmed, lethargic and weak and do not feel able to do so.

36. hormonal variations

The strange hormonal variations are something that can not be said when it comes to fibromyalgia, but it is precisely what happens. Hormonal variations consist of a very low or very high production of some hormones and this can be ignored by most people, but it is one of the usual invisible signs of fibromyalgia.

37. You start to feel numb.

Insensitivity is also a common problem in patients with fibromyalgia. The pain is widespread and most people suffer from deafness. The traumatized behavior is there because you feel muscle spasms and stiffness. Deafness bothers the nerves and causes a complete loss of sensation; Some losses of fibromyalgia are used.

Management:  Persistent deafness and tingling may indicate a serious underlying medical problem. The sooner the diagnosis is made, the faster the treatment can begin. And early treatment often leads to positive results. Your doctor will probably test you after asking about your other symptoms, conditions, and family history. Under certain conditions, such as tarsal tunnel syndrome or trauma, the formation of ice in the affected area can reduce both numbness and pain. Do not leave an ice pack for more than 20 minutes at a time. For people who have too much pressure on their nerves, orthoses can help relieve this pressure and the resulting pain and numbness. Support shoes can also help.

38. depression

We have all heard about depression, but it is something that comes from fibromyalgia and we could rule out that sadness is generally excluded by the majority. A person may feel a lot of depression due to the fact that they are covered in morning stiffness, headaches and anxiety among many other people. This is one of the most important parts of fibromyalgia and should be observed with extreme caution. It is also a symptom that should not go unnoticed.

Administration:    It is important to take care of yourself and focus on your own needs. Eat properly, rest, avoid exaggerations and plan your activities at the time of day you feel better. If someone constantly stresses you and you can not change the relationship, limit the time you spend with them or end the relationship completely.

Injured bones are not common, but people with fibromyalgia are considered injured bones. Sensitivity, pain in bones and the like are caused by a strong interruption of blood circulation and fibromyalgia is one of them. People who suffer from it have difficulty sleeping and can not exercise. Achy Bones is an indication that people feel every day, but it is possible that someone does not realize that it is due to fibromyalgia and that is something that should be verified.

Management:    people should avoid caffeine and other stimulants at night and sleep in a dark and quiet room with comfortable beds. You should not eat or watch television in bed. Doctors may prescribe low doses of tricyclic antidepressants. Aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) generally have limited use. Analgesics such as tramadol or paracetamol can help. Opioids that form over time and can become less effective are best avoided when treating chronic diseases such as fibromyalgia.
