Our Approach to Treating

Fibromyalgia in Adults

What Sets Us Apart

At NYU Langone, our doctors are experienced in diagnosing and treating fibromyalgia, a condition that causes widespread, chronic pain and tenderness throughout the body, often accompanied by fatigue and sleep difficulties.

Making an accurate diagnosis can be challenging, because fibromyalgia symptoms resemble those of other rheumatic conditions—that is, those affecting joints, bones, and muscles. Our physicians perform a thorough assessment to ensure that no symptom is overlooked. Rheumatologists, physical therapists, and other experts at NYU Langone work together to alleviate your symptoms, so that fibromyalgia doesn’t keep you from the activities that are most important to you.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment of fibromyalgia includes medication and physical therapy to control the body’s response to pain. NYU Langone doctors may also recommend lifestyle changes to reduce fatigue and stress.
