Fibromyalgia is probably one of the most controversial medial diagnoses out there. Why? Well, simply put, fibromyalgia does not have an objective test to confirm the condition an individual may be suffering from. Fibromyalgia causes severe pain in several areas of the body in an individual that is consistent for a long period of time. Canadians who face fibromyalgia hold higher risks of other psychological impairments, such as anxiety and depression.
You may be wondering why such a condition leads to psychological impairments. Simply put, fibromyalgia does not have a cure. This is something a person may have to live with for the rest of their life. It takes a toll on an individual’s mental health, physical health, as well as their social life.
Though sometimes this condition may give individuals better days, fibromyalgia may be heightened under certain circumstances. For example, if you have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and then later involved in a car accident, this may trigger the pain and increase your intolerance to things such as standing, sitting, bending, twisting, and much more.
Victims in car accidents that have fibromyalgia may be given a difficult time from the insurer to prove their condition as many medical examinations must be conducted to rule out every other possible options of diagnosis falling in line with the symptoms the patient may be facing.
