What are some treatments for fibromyalgia?


Answer by  rajbharat (141)

Effective treatments are patient education, stress reduction, exercise and diet. There is no specific diet; though avoiding alcohol and coffee before bedtime gives patient a restful sleep.

Non-narcotic medications, low-doses of anti-depressants, benzodiazepines, anti-convulsants, and sometimes lidocaine injections to tender pain areas are used to manage pain. Stretches and exercise reduces pain and helps mobility. Patients also difficulty sleeping by using a good sleep hygiene, although sleep medications can be given to help rest. Alternative treatments include supplements, massage, physical therapy, aromatherapy, and other complementary self-help steps.
