Fibromyalgia/Myofascial Syndrome (MFPS)

FybromyalgiaAbout 5 to 10 percent of the people experience tender and tight muscles, and sore points usually in the neck, chest, shoulders, knees, hips, and back. All of these are the symptoms of fibromyalgia, which further causes other complications such as insomnia and depression along with a tingling and discomfort that stays for long intervals of time before going away.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic but benign and non-progressive condition that usually follows trauma. It doesn’t have any specific cause, and more often than not, it is diagnosed by ruling out any other possible illnesses that may cause similar symptoms.

Myofascial Syndrome (MFPS) is another condition seen in those who have suffered injuries and those who have lifestyles marked with repeated occurrences of physical injury. Although this condition is common across all age-groups and both the sexes, women at an age suitable for child birth tend to suffer from it more than others.

The treatment of this condition involves avoiding emotional stresses, cold drafts, and prolonged physical stress arising due to situations such as sustained postures, etc. It also includes planning a lifestyle in a way that allows you time for exercise so you can stay limber and physically active.
