Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a poorly understood complex, chronic disorder. It can cause widespread pain and stiffness, poor sleep and fatigue. It is often associated with other conditions including depression, anxiety, headaches, swelling of extremities, irritable bowel syndrome, and restless leg syndrome among others. It typically was a waxing & waning pattern that can be affected by weather changes, stress, overexertion, illness or surgery. The goal of treatment is to reduce symptoms and improve function, as there is no known cure. While treatment regimens vary widely, physical activity is of utmost importance.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, our goal at Pacific Pain Medicine Consultants is to provide patient’s with quality pain management treatment while still optimizing the health and safety of our patients, providers, and staff.

We are providing telemedicine visits for new and established patients. Patients with severe pain that warrant more urgent treatment with injections will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will need to evaluate the patient’s age, medical comorbidities, and risk factors as well as potential symptoms of respiratory infection in making a determination. Elective pain procedures and injections are deferred at this time in order to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus and to ration personal protect equipment so it may be available where it is most critically needed.
