Fibromyalgia closely resembles chronic fatigue syndrome. In addition to fatigue that does not seem to improve with rest, patients with fibromyalgia may experience widespread pain, mood and memory issues, irritable bowel syndrome, sleep disturbances, anxiety, TMJ disorder, and headaches. It is believed that the amplified pain sensations experienced by those with fibromyalgia may stem from improper processing of signals in the brain. Elevated levels of certain chemicals may also play a role in persistent or frequent pain.
Due to the complexity of this condition, obtaining a proper diagnosis for pain may take time. The average time for a fibromyalgia diagnosis is two years. When you visit Dr. Andronico with symptoms resembling chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, a thorough consultation, medical history, and examination process will be conducted. We believe that any time spent feeling unwell is too much time. With comprehensive diagnostic testing and investigation of your medical history, we identify areas of deficiency and go from there to improve your health and quality of life.
Osteopathic medicine is a field in which the focus is placed on relieving obstructions in the musculoskeletal system. Dr. Andronico completed an extensive Fellowship in Nutritional and Metabolic Medicine, giving him an even broader understanding of complex systemic diseases. Although osteopathic manual manipulation may be beneficial in resolving chronic or frequent pain, Dr. Andronico treats his patients from a functional standpoint that assesses the big picture.
Properly evaluating your lab results may be an important component in the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. With specific testing, we can accurately measure levels of the various vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients present in the body. Dr. Andronico may evaluate hormones, blood sugar levels, and various vitamins such as vitamin D. Often, symptoms can improve when hormones are brought into balance and the body receives the nourishment it needs to function at optimal levels.
Fibromyalgia, which affects women more than men, is a chronic condition that may persist for many years. The intent of care is to minimize the various symptoms that may occur. With a multidisciplinary approach that includes lifestyle habits, stress management, nutrition, exercise, and targeted osteopathic manipulation, we can help you move better, feel better, and be better.
