Fibromyalgia can be painful and seeing a doctor about your symptoms is the first step in getting relief. The good news is that fibromyalgia is not life threatening, nor does it cause any permanent damage. Most people can improve their symptoms by making a few lifestyle changes, and in some cases, medication may help as well. Talk to your doctor about finding the right treatment option for you.

Should I see a doctor about my fibromyalgia symptoms?

Can olive oil help relieve chronic pain?
Olive oil is liquid gold when it comes to fighting chronic pain. This elixir is rich in antioxidant polyphenols that help inhibit a common pain-causing mechanism in the body. Plus, olive oil makes a great substitute for butter, which is high in saturated fat. That's great, because too much saturated fat in the diet has been shown to erode bone strength and trigger pain. So enjoy this Mediterranean alternative in your next pasta sauce, salad dressing, or sauté. But use it judiciously. Olive oil has 120 calories per tablespoon.
How do surgeons decide where to amputate?
Discovery Health answered
When deciding where to make an amputation, surgeons need to evaluate which body tissues have the best opportunity for survival. One issue to consider is the blood supply to the area. Various sophisticated techniques can be used to measure skin temperature, blood pressure and blood flow.
