Possible Link Between Fibromyalgia and PTSD

Treatment Options

At this time, there is no known cure for FM. Unfortunately, drug management is ineffective for FM currently. This is likely because the underlying cause of this condition is yet unknown. Therefore, patients with FM should change their lifestyle and adopt healthy habits, such as regular physical activity, consuming a healthy diet, smoking cessation, and avoiding alcohol. In some cases, patients are advised to visit a psychologist in order to manage symptoms through behavioral therapy. In case of developing mental health issues, a physician will prescribe certain drugs. Alternative medicine may be considered but should first be discussed with a physician.
