Fibromyalgia is a form of long-term Chronic Pain and can be caused by injury in an accident, including both minor and serious injuries.
Fibromyalgia has many common symptoms, such as:
- Pain and muscle stiffness
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Difficulties with memory and concentration (sometimes called Fibro Fog)
- IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
It’s thought that any trauma to the central nervous system can trigger the onset of Fibromyalgia, and research has shown that that as many as 20 to 25% of people suffering with the condition had an accident shortly before the onset of their symptoms.
If you suffer a traumatic accident that causes injuries such as whiplash, you could develop Post Traumatic Fibromyalgia. And if you already suffer with the condition, then suffering an injury in an accident can make your symptoms worse.
If you’ve developed Fibromyalgia because you were involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s only right that you can access the care, support and rehabilitation you need to live with your condition.
