Fibromyalgia is a neurological condition that manifests as widespread muscle pain. In personal injury cases, it’s brought on by the physical trauma from an accident or the stress of dealing with an injury. Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers understand that the debilitating effects of fibromyalgia extend far beyond physical pain. We help people cope with the disruption of being unable to work or to enjoy social and personal activities because of their re-occurring condition.
Our Ottawa injury lawyers care that your fibromyalgia injury is properly diagnosed
We know how important it is to fully understand fibromyalgia. Diagnosis requires putting pressure on specific “trigger points” found on the body. These points are soft tissue regions and intense pain must be felt in at least 11 of the 18 areas for diagnosis. Symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
- Early morning stiffness
- Extreme fatigue
- Un-refreshing sleep
- Difficulty concentrating and remembering
- Tingling and numbness in the hands and feet
- Abdominal cramping
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
What is the cause of fibromyalgia?
The actual cause of fibromyalgia remains a mystery to the medical world and there is no cure. As with whiplash and chronic pain, some skepticism surrounds injuries of this nature. Insurance companies are often dubious of claims involving hard-to-pinpoint general pain and malaise. Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers know what you’re going through, and we care about making your injury and suffering understood. That’s why we consult experienced medical professionals to assure injuries like fibromyalgia are properly diagnosed and reported to the insurance companies so you can seek compensation, accident benefits, and treatments to live as comfortably as possible.
