Nerve Pain and Fibromyalgia
Pain from fibromyalgia and Peripheral Neuropathy can cause irritation or impingement on the central nervous system. Both conditions, separately, can be life-altering, but both of them together can produce a different type of pain and discomfort.
Fibromyalgia may develop for several reasons, such as genetics, infections, or physical or emotional trauma. However, doctors and researchers are not 100 percent sure of the cause. On the other hand, fibromyalgia produces muscle pain, sleep disturbance, mood changes, memory issues, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, and depression.
Peripheral Neuropathy can cause damage to the peripheral nerves, which can cause weakness, numbness, tingling, burning sensations, and pain in various parts of the body, mainly the hands, arms, legs, and feet. This condition is typically a result of traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, and even exposure to toxins.

Although they may be two different conditions, there is a connection between fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy. Some of the symptoms for each disease are similar, but they originate differently. While fibromyalgia is vastly misunderstood as to its origination and development, neuropathy, on the other hand, may develop from a list of underlying issues. However, both conditions significantly impact the central nervous system and may cause intolerable nerve pain in extreme cases.
Both fibromyalgia and neuropathy can be treated similarly, depending on the affected parts of the body. As chronic conditions, meaning pain and discomfort, are constant, the symptoms contributing to the pain from either disease can be debilitating. There may even be moments when symptoms from fibromyalgia can cause nerve damage and develop in some parts of the body. This is when things get really painful. Fortunately, there is a high chance that both conditions can be treated simultaneously with the help of an appropriate strategy for treatment.

In the United States, according to the American College Rheumatology (ACR), fibromyalgia affects approximately two to four percent of the population (rheumatology.org, 2017), and peripheral neuropathy affects about 20 million Americans per year, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (ninds.nih.gov, 2016).
It is commonly seen that people with fibromyalgia often suffer from peripheral nerve damage as well. However, it has also been seen that many patients with both conditions may also have symptoms of diabetes such as tiredness, loss of energy, soreness, and muscle aches. Peripheral neuropathy pain in the lower extremities may also be comparable to diabetes based on the tingling, sharp pains, and burning sensations associated with this type of neuropathy.
Essentially, the painful tender points of the body combined with the mental fog or other cognitive issues can cause a high amount of debilitation in patients with fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy. The good news is that there is a treatment available in NJ.
