Dr. Mathur’s expertise lies in knowing how to develop a customized treatment protocol that can help patients reduce the signs and fibromyalgia symptoms and improve their overall quality of life.

Fibromyalgia affects about 2% to 4% of the population, with women being diagnosed at a rate of 7:1 compared to men. Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose because it is known to occur in conjunction with other chronic illness, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is a systemic inflammatory disease of the joints, Lupus Erythematosus, which is an autoimmune disease that causes widespread inflammation and tissue damage, osteoporosis, which is a degeneration of cartilage and bone in the joints, and Ankylosing Spondylitis a chronic inflammatory disease affecting the axial skeletal and joints.

Though the causes of fibromyalgia are unknown, experts believe that fibromyalgia may amplify how the brain processes pain signals.

 

Some physicians feel that fibromyalgia may be exacerbated with hormone imbalances. This is because hormones such as testosterone and DHEA play a role in how pain receptors respond in the body. Waning hormone levels may cause pain receptors and inflammation in the body to be heightened, which can increase the symptoms and issues that arise with fibromyalgia. Restoring hormone balance may harmonize the way that pain receptors perceive pain, which can lead to a reduction in the symptoms of widespread body pain.
