The Hattiesburg Clinic rheumatologists are here to help in understanding, diagnosing and treating fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia Overview

Fibromyalgia is a chronic medical condition that impacts the muscles, joints and soft tissues throughout the body. Typically characterized by widespread pain and tenderness in the body, fibromyalgia is often accompanied by issues related to sleep, mood and memory. Left untreated, it can greatly impact your quality of life. Hattiesburg Clinic has a full team of expert rheumatologists to help in understanding, diagnosing and treating your condition.

While the exact cause of fibromyalgia is not known, a combination of genetic, environmental and neurological factors is believed to play a major role in this syndrome. Typically, we see this condition after a trauma, psychological event, infection or surgery. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. It is often seen more in women than in men.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms

With fibromyalgia, we typically see several symptoms present at one time. These might include:

  • Widespread, aching pain
  • Tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep issues
  • Cognitive issues
  • Other conditions like anxiety, depression, IBS, headaches and TMJ may also be present in patients

Other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis may increase your chances of developing fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia Treatment

While medications, therapies and lifestyle modifications may be part of a typical treatment plan, care plans will vary from patient to patient. At Hattiesburg Clinic, our patients receive an individualized approach to their care. Patients will have an initial consultation to talk through symptoms, health history and more. From there, our specialists will work with you to determine the best course of care.
