One of the goals of treating fibromyalgia, is really to get the patient back to living the best life they can possibly live. It's really important that patients of fibromyalgia be able to do things that they like to do, being able to spend time with family and friends, go to work, and have hobbies and interests.

One of the ways that you will know if your fibromyalgia symptoms are improving and if your treatment is working, has to do with how often you have symptoms, how much it affects your life, and how severe the symptoms are. You really want to pay attention to this, if you're able to live a functional life, that's really our goal, but if you're still struggling and there are still things that could be improved, this is really a sign that you should be talking to your doctor and trying to work to get to that place.
