Fibromyalgia: Treatment & Pain Relief

What Is Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a non-progressive disease characterized by a wide variety of symptoms, including fatigue and chronic muscle, ligament, and joint pain. Numerous factors can aggravate these symptoms, and it’s common for this pain to prevent sufferers from enjoying daily activities and, in many cases, from getting a good night’s sleep. In severe cases, it can be incapacitating.

While we don’t really know what causes fibromyalgia, we do know people often feel like they simply woke up one day with it. While the presence of a minor injury may be a trigger, its onset is often very subtle.

Breast Thermography

Infrared Breast Thermography is another diagnostic tool we offer for our Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson area patients. It is a safe, non-ionizing, non-contact study of breast skin temperature that is useful as a breast health risk assessment.  It has particular utility in monitoring the effects of breast hormone therapy.  It is also useful as in the detection of physiologic changes such as hormonal imbalance, lymphatic edema, ductal congestion, chest wall pain syndromes,  and angiogenesis.  Internationally peer reviewed Guidelines for Breast Thermography have been developed by the American Academy of Thermology in 2012 and restated in 2013.  These guidelines support breast thermal imaging as a breast risk assessment, not unlike high blood pressure screening for vascular disease.
