    Failure to diagnose fibromyalgia


    Failure to diagnose fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia is a condition that is sometimes also referred to as a syndrome. This condition can persist for a long period of time and causes individuals to experience pain in many different ways. Not only will they feel pain, they will also be more prone to feeling it in the first place.

    Other symptoms will also present themselves as a result of having this condition. For example muscle pain and stiffness is quite common, as is a difficulty in getting any sleep at night. It can be uncomfortable to sleep or to get comfortable. Other symptoms include headaches and difficulties with various mental processes. For example someone suffering from fibromyalgia might find it hard to remember things in contrast with someone who does not have the condition.

    It is typically present in adults rather than children, and women seem to be far more susceptible to it than men. While no cure exists at present there are a number of treatments that can ease the symptoms experienced by those who have this syndrome. Sometimes a stressful event will act as a trigger for the syndrome to make itself present.

    Would a failure to diagnose fibromyalgia affect your life?

    This is a condition that can affect you in lots of different ways. For example symptoms can include irritable bowel syndrome and muscle stiffness among other things. While no treatment is available that will cure it completely, there are things that can be done to ease the symptoms you are feeling. This means there is a potential to see an improvement in your condition if you are properly diagnosed by your GP. As such it is important to get medical advice and to get a correct diagnosis as quickly as possible, as this can lead you to have a better life.
