How to Treat Fibromyalgia Flare Ups

Pain and Inflammation

Fibromyalgia affects approximately five million adults in the United States. This chronic condition creates fatigue along with pain and tenderness throughout the body. Individuals with fibromyalgia can also struggle with anxiety, brain fog and a host of other symptoms. At times, flare ups in the level of pain can be triggered. This can cause severe difficulty with being able to engage in daily activities. Here is everything you need to know on how to treat fibromyalgia flare ups to improve your overall quality of life.

Triggers of Fibromyalgia Flare Ups

There are numerous triggers that can cause fibromyalgia flare ups to occur. Triggers can vary depending on the individual and the symptoms of fibromyalgia they experience. Common triggers include a person’s diet, hormones, stress or sleep patterns. Changes in temperature or weather can significantly impact a person’s pain levels. Medications to treat fibromyalgia pain can also trigger flare ups.

To help you identify potential triggers, it can be helpful to keep a journal of your activities and your symptoms. This may help you spot patterns that are making your symptoms worse. You may want to consider bringing this journal to your doctor’s appointments so you can receive advice and recommendations for reducing your pain.

Treatment for Fibromyalgia Flare Ups

Learning how to manage the triggers behind fibromyalgia flare ups can help reduce your pain levels. While you may not be able to control certain triggers like the weather or some external stressors, there are a few things you can do to minimize flare ups from occurring. Eliminate potential food triggers from your diet such as sugar, alcohol, caffeine and processed foods. Exercise regularly and get assistance with stress management techniques from a licensed therapist.

There are several professional treatment options that can help you manage the pain from fibromyalgia flare ups. Some effective treatment options include physical therapy, medication management, injection therapy and psychotherapy. Combining several treatment options together may help you prevent frequent flare ups so you can enjoy your daily activities with less pain.

Joy P.

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
