Suggestions to help you feel better
Fibromyalgia is a painful, tiring condition that affects about five million adults in the United States, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) says.While the condition's cause is poorly understood, NIAMS offers these suggestions to help you manage symptoms:
- Even if exercise sounds painful, physical activity is recommended for people with fibromyalgia. Some light and regular exercise -- even just walking -- can help boost energy and ease pain.
- Eat a healthy diet, and stay away from any foods that seem to trigger fibromyalgia symptoms.
- Make sure you get enough sleep each night.
- Stay comfortable at work. When possible, make sure your chair and desk are set up comfortably, limit the hours you work, and try to adjust your responsibilities (if they include standing, lifting, etc.)
