The authors outline how fibromyalgia may be misdiagnosed in post-surgical patients and veterans that present with generalized forms of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
There is a strong association between fibromyalgia and CRPS.
The utilization of interventional procedures such as epidural steroid injections or sympathetic nervous system ganglion blocks were superior treatment options.
There is a correlation between surgery/trauma and the development of fibromyalgia. However, it is unclear what perioperative environments may predispose a patient to the disease state.
At Lumina, we present the knowledge healthcare providers need to understand and treat pain-related conditions in a single location.
Our goal is to assist healthcare providers to achieve diagnostic accuracy, pre-consultation and to provide an evidence-based treatment roadmap and tools to track patient progress and promote patient adherence.
