Can fibromyalgia get worse over time?

Yes....but. Most of my patients stabilize and thru multiple modalities actually improve. Check out dr. Teitelbaum's data. He actually claims cure and or marked improvement with his protocol which attacks both fms and chronic fatigue (cfs.) hope this helps. If you have other questions get in touch. Another great book is "the fibromyalgia handbook" by staranyl and copeland.
Yes. Can fibromyalgia (FM) worsen? Yes. Major co-factors are global loss of muscle tone, obesity & loose pelvic ligaments. Inactivity, multiple childbirths, additional mechanical injuries, weight, depression & restless sleep conjoin to worsen chronic myalgia & fatigue. FM symptoms signal worsening intensity of multiple co-factors. In a curious fashion, FM begets itself via a downward etiologic spiral.
Fibromyalgia. Yes but it can also get better w good therapy and a good attitude.
