Fibromyalgia Counselling Wolverhampton
Fibromyalgia Counselling in Wolverhampton, West Midlands
Fibromyalgia is characterised by chronic widespread pain and a heightened pain response to pressure. Other symptoms often include feeling tired to such a degree that normal activities may be affected, for example sleep problems. Some people also report restless legs syndrome, bowel or bladder problems, numbness and tingling, and sensitivity to noise, lights or temperature.
Fibromyalgia is frequently associated with depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder.
The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown; however, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors with half the risk attributed to each. Environmental factors may include psychological stress, trauma, and certain infections.
The pain appears to result from processes in the central nervous system and the condition is referred to as a “central sensitization syndrome”. Diagnosis involves first ruling out other potential causes and verifying that a set number of symptoms are present and so we always recommend that sufferers consult their GP before seeking any kind of psychological support.
Recommendations for the treatment of fibromyalgia often include getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy may also be helpful.
Fibromyalgia is estimated to affect 2–8% of the population. Females are affected about twice as often as males. There is controversy about the classification, diagnosis, and treatment of fibromyalgia. While some feel the diagnosis of fibromyalgia may negatively affect a person, other research finds it to be beneficial.
