How to Help Manage Your Fibromyalgia Pain

Living with fibromyalgia is tough, but there are things you can do to manage your pain and give you your life back. In order to reduce discomfort, improve your mood and get relief from your symptoms, here are three ways to manage your fibromyalgia pain.

REDUCE STRESS

Stress can cause fibromyalgia symptoms to flare up, which is why reducing your stress is an important step in managing your pain. This may require that you change your behavior, actively manage your emotions and possibly even remove yourself both physically and emotionally from situations that may induce stress. 

REGULAR EXERCISE

Although moving is often hard to do with fibromyalgia, it is important to exercise regularly so that you stay physically healthy and fit. Exercising can also help improve your mood and give you a sense of control in a powerless situation.

ELIMINATE CAFFEINE

Caffeine can cause your heart to race and increase your feelings of anxiety, nervousness, and uneaseā€”all of which can cause undue stress on your body. Reducing your caffeine intake can reduce your stress level and allow you to sleep better, both of which can help in managing fibromyalgia pain.
Learning how to manage your symptoms can help make daily life easier and more controllable for fibromyalgia sufferers. To learn more about the different ways that you can manage your fibromyalgia pain, call Berkower Pain and Spine Rehabilitation at 954-430-9972.
