Fibromyalgia is a disease related to arthritis. Because it is very difficult to spot, Dr. Oz has made an entire show on this disease, trying to draw people`s attention to it`s symptoms so it can be easy to spot. Everyone knows that the sooner you spot a disease, the easier it is to treat it.
How can we spot fibromyalgia?
Although this disease is very difficult to spot, the most common symptom people usually have when they suffer from fibromyalgia is muscle pain. Of course there are a great number of other diseases that might have the same symptoms, that’s why it is very important to get a professional opinion.
It is very hard for doctors to give this diagnosis to, as they have a lot of other diseases to exclude from the list of possibilities. A really detailed discussion with your doctor will be very useful though as there are other related symptoms that might draw their attention and directly place you with the correct diagnosis. Here are some of the other related symptoms that can set an alarm toward fibromyalgia:
Headaches are very common symptoms that can mislead us a lot of times. We can get headaches because of lack of sleep, stress, bad weather, common cold and a lot of other reasons. We will never be able to spot a disease such as fibromyalgia just by having a headache. We might able to do it though if we relate repeated headaches to muscle pain.
Bladder and bowel problems
This particular symptom can be very misleading to women as they often get irritable bladder. After a certain age, in women`s case, a simple two minutes on a cold bench or any other kind of cold surface will guarantee very decreased blather control. This will not only make you go to the bathroom often, but it can also cause you constant pain.
Problems with your memory
Memory problems are very difficult to spot, but when someone draws your attention to them, you should take it seriously. Memory problems will never be symptoms of a common disease like the flue or any other light disease, that`s why it should be given the attention it deserves.
Pain in your pelvic area can also misguide women as they might mistake this symptom as clear blather or ovaries cold.
Sensitivity to noise
If you are sensitive to noise, you will probably blame it on stress as it is not a very common symptom and people don`t usually pay a lot of attention to this kind of body signs.
Sensitivity to temperature changes
Temperature change is also a more rarely encountered symptom. As a result, it should definitely draw your attention once you repeatedly experience it.
Other symptoms that you might encounter is anxiety or/and depression. You might not know that you suffer from depression but pain can easily do that to a person, no matter how much character strength one might have.
If you spot any of these symptoms, don`t hesitate to make a doctor`s appointment as soon as possible.
