Fibromyalgia is a painful condition no doubt,but one has to rule out many other conditions like joint hypermobility, hypothyroidism,Vitamin D deficiency before attributing all pain due to fibromyalgia.The treatment of this condition remains more of physiotherapy in the form of biofeedback and aerobic exercises.Medicines do help but to a limited extent.Especially drugs like opana is to be avoided as these are habit forming and can lead to serious side effects on long run.
