Fibromyalgia is a complex disorder of the musculoskeletal system that can affect the muscles and deep, soft tissue in the body. Although research has not confirmed a direct cause of fibromyalgia, medical professionals have an understanding of the various conditions that may contribute to its cause. For instance, genetics, infection, major trauma and stress.

The tissue that lines the joints becomes swollen resulting in chronic pain, as well as potential bone erosion and deformity, typically visible in the hands and wrists. For some people, it is possible that some symptoms other than joint, muscle, or bones seem to be linked to other health issues they’ve been experiencing such as rashes, infections, and fevers. If you are suffering from RA, our team of experts will want to understand the level of your pain and where it is located, factors that may influence your pain, as well as how you managed your pain including, a list of all your prescriptions and over-the-counter medications you’ve been taking. A full history of your condition needs to be understood by the rheumatologist as each individual person who suffers from arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and other pain disorders in the joints, may have unique issues based on their overall health and lifestyle patterns, not one case is the same as another.
