IV Fluids to Treat Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal disorder characterized by widespread pain typically accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, or mood imbalance issues. It most likely relates to changes in the central processing system by creating amplified peripheral pain signals that lead to intense pain sensations. Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose due to the vast array of symptoms associated with this condition. Thankfully, IV fluids are now among the leading treatments used to treat it.
Many experience a wide range of symptoms
Did you know two percent of the U.S. population is affected by fibromyalgia? It may not seem like much, but this percentage represents approximately four million people. fibromyalgia pain varies and occurs at different levels of intensity.
Many describe their pain as a deep or dull ache that begins in the muscles and radiates to other areas. This pain typically occurs during intense “flare-ups.”
Men and women experience fibromyalgia pain differently. Both tend to experience extreme pain, but women tend to report higher levels. This is also more common in those with immune system disorders such as Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Common tender points associated with fibromyalgia include:
- Back of the head
- The area between the shoulder blades
- Front of the neck
- Top of the chest
- Outside of the elbows
- Tops and sides of the hips
- Inside the knees
- Ankle, wrist, and finger joints
These symptoms contribute to decreased sleep, lack of quality sleep, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, bowel issues (IBS), fatigue, depression, and lack of concentration.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, the good news is you can proactively treat them with a non-invasive, non-opioid treatment plan created specifically for you.
Treat fibromyalgia with IV fluids
You can manage your pain and live a happy, healthy, and active lifestyle. Some choose pain management strategies that include over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Some of the commonly prescribed drugs consist of duloxetine (Cymbalta), gabapentin for nerve pain (Neurontin, Gralise), and pregabalin (Lyrica).
These medications may mask your pain, but do nothing to treat the underlying disorder.
IV fluids are now being used to treat fibromyalgia with the direct delivery of vitamins and other nutrients. If you are experiencing fibromyalgia-related bowel issues, you can’t absorb the proper nutrients to function normally. By increasing the body’s ability to absorb several essential vitamins and minerals, your body works better, which decreases the effects of fibromyalgia pain.
