Battling chronic pain is not easy to contend with, and if fibromyalgia is the cause, I’m sad to say that there currently is no treatment to cure it. Fibromyalgia, like many autoimmune diseases, can only be managed with a combination of and pain medications and therapy. There are techniques available, such as physical & occupational therapy, that provide some drug-free relief. 

Fibromyalgia affects nearly 10% of the population, with most sufferers being women. The diagnostic definition of Fibromyalgia is established by three or more months of widespread pain that has no real medical explanation. This is why the condition is so difficult to treat.
