Fibromyalgia Q & A

Pivotal Health and Wellness

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic health condition in your soft tissue and muscles that causes generalized pain and tenderness. It’s often misdiagnosed because its symptoms are similar to those of arthritis. Our staff knows how to tell the difference between arthritic damage and pain caused by fibromyalgia so that you get the appropriate treatment.

There is no known cure for fibromyalgia. However, the team at Pivotal Health and Wellness can help you find practical ways to manage your symptoms.

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

The symptoms of fibromyalgia affect each person differently. In some cases, a pain signal misinterpretation in the brain causes pain and leads to the following symptoms:

  • Memory loss
  • Bladder issues
  • Morning stiffness

  • Insomnia
  • Tenderness throughout your body
