Fibromylagia is a common musculoskeletal condition in the United States. It is estimated that nearly 1 out of every 20 people suffer from the condition. Strangely, Gulf War veterans are diagnosed with the condition more frequentl
y than the general public, but the reason why is still unknown.

Common symptoms of the condition include anxiety, extreme fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and widespread body pain. Unfortunately, these symptoms are also common in other medical conditions such as hypothyroidism. If you are suffering from these symptoms, you should undergo a series of tests to determine whether or not your symptoms are being caused by fibromylagia.

Fibromylagia should be treated as soon as possible. The pain can make it difficult to relax and sleep. This inability to rest, coupled with intense fatigue, can cause depression.

Fortunately, the condition can be treated by taking a certain prescription drug, known by the generic name of pregabalin. This drug can help ease the pain that a person with fibromylagia may experience. Antidepressants are also prescribed to those who suffer from depression due to the disease.

Brave veterans have sacrificed their time and safety for the sake of the free world. Now, they can let veteran’s disability lawyers fight their battle for them. If you’re a veteran diagnosed with fibromylagia, do not hesitate to hire a lawyer to help you file your compensation claim.
