Fibromyalgia Diagnosis, Conditions, and Symptoms
Fibromyalgia can manifest in various ways, and symptoms may include:
Chronic, widespread pain that affects multiple areas of the body, including muscles, joints, and soft tissues.
Problems with concentration, memory, and cognitive function, often referred to as “fibro fog.”
Increased sensitivity to pain, temperature, light, or noise, known as hypersensitivity or allodynia.
Profound fatigue and lack of energy, even after a restful sleep.
Sleep disorders, such as insomnia or restless leg syndrome, that result in non-restorative sleep.

At Kennedy Health, we offer comprehensive fibromyalgia care and treatment options:
Medications such as analgesics, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, or muscle relaxants may be prescribed to manage pain, improve sleep quality, and reduce other associated symptoms.

CBT techniques, including relaxation exercises, stress management, and coping strategies, can help individuals better manage pain and improve their overall well-being.
Our experienced physical therapists design personalized exercise programs to improve strength, flexibility, and overall physical function, helping to reduce pain and fatigue.
Complementary approaches such as acupuncture, massage therapy, or yoga may provide symptom relief and improve overall well-being.
We provide guidance on adopting a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise, stress management, proper nutrition, and improving sleep hygiene.
