Until now other doctors have only given pain relievers and sedatives, please enlighten me …
Hello Sadewo, Thank you for the question.
What complaints did your father experience? A health complaint can be caused by a variety of health conditions that can only be ascertained by a doctor's physical examination supported by supporting examinations. Because you did not convey the complaints experienced by your father, sorry I can not provide more precise information.
Fibromyalgia is a long-term disease that causes a person to experience pain throughout the body, which can be burning, stabbing, or dull pain that lasts for at least 12 weeks. Pain can occur with varying severity. In addition to pain, sufferers will also feel muscle stiffness, headaches, insomnia, easy fatigue, abdominal pain, anxiety, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, heat or cold. This disease is not easy to diagnose because complaints resemble other diseases. In addition to experiencing symptoms for at least 12 weeks, several other features are not found other causes of doctor examinations and sufferers experience pain in 4 or more parts of the body. To diagnose this disease, the doctor needs to know the patient's complaints, examine the patient's physical condition, and conduct a supporting examination such as blood tests, X-rays, and others to look for other causes of the complaint. If it is caused by fibromyalgia, the treatment given by the doctor is to overcome the symptoms because this disease cannot be cured. The doctor will give painkillers, muscle relaxants, sedatives, or other drugs combined with physiotherapy and psychological therapy.
Some other diseases that cause pain complaints are:
osteoporosis, or osteoarthritis bone loss, or calcification of psychosomatic arthritis do you mean bone loss or calcification of bones? Osteoporosis generally does not cause pain except if there is a broken bone or fractured bone. Is it possible that you mean bone calcification?
Please discuss again with the doctor who handled your father. Do not hesitate to consult with other doctors to ask for a second opinion. Without a doctor's examination, it's impossible to know the cause of your father's complaints and subsequent handling.
Hopefully this information is useful.
