Fibromyalgia Q & A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a complex condition that causes pain throughout your body. Everyone has a unique experience with fibromyalgia, and symptoms vary greatly between patients. Some common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Widespread physical pain and tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Mood problems
  • Sleep disruption
  • Problems with memory, paying attention, or making decisions

If you have fibromyalgia, your chances of developing other disruptive chronic conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, chronic cystitis, and temporomandibular joint disorder, are higher.

Fibromyalgia often has a negative impact on your emotional and mental well-being. The condition is sometimes challenging to diagnose and treat because of the changeable nature of your symptoms, which can be frustrating.

What causes fibromyalgia?

Physicians and medical researchers don’t fully understand the cause of fibromyalgia, although it’s believed to be genetic. It’s also believed that an infection or physical or emotional trauma can trigger the condition.

Women have a higher risk of developing fibromyalgia than men. Your risk is also higher if you have another painful condition like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

How is fibromyalgia diagnosed?

There’s no single test to identify fibromyalgia. Dr. Amin uses thorough exams and consultations to develop a deep understanding of your pain and other symptoms. He also runs various tests to rule out other conditions that could be causing your pain.

How is fibromyalgia treated?

Fibromyalgia can be quite resistant to traditional pain interventions like physical therapy and medications. At Florida StemCell MD, Dr. Amin offers an effective alternative to these conventional treatments with customized regenerative medicine strategies to relieve fibromyalgia pain.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy aid in the regeneration of diseased cells, helping you find relief from fibromyalgia pain. PRP is derived from a sample of your own blood that’s spun down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelet count. Platelets contain numerous growth and healing factors and can help your body combat the inflammation and tissue issues associated with fibromyalgia.

Stem cells are specialized cells found in your body that naturally help you heal. When injected, they can reduce overall inflammation and promote wellness in fibromyalgia patients.

Dr. Amin takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain and will develop an effective course of regenerative treatment to help you heal from fibromyalgia.
