Is Fibromyalgia Real? Can it be Treated?

Head Pain Atlanta GA

Over the last few decades, it’s become more acceptable to talk about chronic pain conditions without shame or fear, especially when there isn’t a definitive test that can “prove” the condition is real. But unfortunately, fibromyalgia is real and varies in when, where and how things hurt or are dysfunctional. The ever-changing symptoms cause many who have fibromyalgia to miss out on health care that can help them feel better and do more.

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia appears to be connected to the central nervous system, where chemicals and hormones that tell the central nervous system how to operate seem to go out of balance. But the only consistencies between one patient and another, or between a good day and a bad one, are chronic pain and heavy fatigue.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

The seemingly random and never-ending symptoms of fibromyalgia cause problems. Those living with fibromyalgia and those close to them never know what might happen. It could be your legs feel like they weigh 300 lbs. each, or you may sleep 16 hours and still be completely exhausted.

Unfortunately, the pain and the fatigue are present more often than not, and things can become debilitating. It’s important to know there is no evidence that fibromyalgia causes actual harm to the nerves and muscles. But exhaustion, pain and depression are commonly found as symptoms that disable those living with it, sometimes in big ways.

In addition, many struggle with migraines, dizziness and digestive problems. Mixing in muscle pain, sleep disorders, decreased memory and loss of clarity (fibro fog) can make a regular life nearly impossible. Fortunately, doctors are learning more about fibromyalgia than ever before. As a result, more doctors are seeing the links that can connect fibromyalgia patients.

How Can Fibromyalgia be Treated?

The good news is that some doctors are finding more and better ways to treat fibromyalgia, including a tailored plan for a unique set of symptoms for each patient. Historically, one thing that makes it challenging to treat fibromyalgia is the symptoms are different for everyone, and they are widespread. At Medici Spine & Pain, we use multiple disciplines to treat individual symptoms.

Options may include physical therapy and medication management, psychotherapy, injection therapy and more. By consulting closely with you, our team will design a plan for a positive outcome, including reduced or no pain and more function.

Medici Spine & Pain brings a multi-disciplinary approach to chronic pain and disability. Our team of experts works to get to the root of your problem and find a way to restore health and vitality. Contact us to schedule your consultation and evaluation.

To Dr. Sonny and all the staff at Marietta: What a wonderful appointment I had at Medici for epidural injections! I can't say enough about Jana and Sarah and the gentleman in the back and front office personnel also. They were so caring and friendly; it was quite entertaining while waiting for my turn! They have such a pleasant camaraderie together and engage the patients in conversation too. They bring a very comfortable atmosphere to all. It sure helped pass the time and alleviate any anxiety one might have. The best part is I walked out with NO PAIN. However, later I realized that was mostly due to the local anesthesia... Ha, ha on me! I know it is a temporary fix, but I will enjoy it as long as it is effective. I thank all who I've been in touch with during this journey. You're all awesome at all locations!! P.S. Jana and Sarah: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME ON AND OFF THOSE NARROW TORTUOUS BEDS!!!! It was my biggest fear!!! Blessings to all...."I'll be back!!"

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.


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.

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!
