Health Guides: Ease Pain from Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia and Coexisting ConditionsPain and fatigue aren't the only partners of fibromyalgia. Frequently, one or more related conditions may also develop. Learn what those are and how you can treat them to gain better control of your fibromyalgia.

Some conditions seem to go hand in hand with fibromyalgia. And perhaps you've experienced some of them. It's not yet clear whether they are truly separate -- but related -- illnesses or are simply symptoms of fibromyalgia. And researchers also aren't sure whether fibromyalgia somehow causes these other conditions to develop, whether the conditions somehow cause fibromyalgia to develop, or whether the coexisting conditions are completely unrelated. Regardless, to feel your best, you must also manage these other conditions and work with your doctor to treat them. Fortunately, there are many options for doing just that.
