Fibromyalgia Sufferers | Do You Lose Strength In Your Hands?Malik Qasir
Fibromyalgia Sufferers Do
Fibromyalgia Sufferers do a common characteristic found in most sufferers of fibromyalgia is a chronic pain that affects a large part of the body. This disconcerting symptom is usually followed by morning joint stiffness, hand and foot paresthesia, i.e. tingling sensation and numbness, sleep disturbances and, above all, a sense of exhaustion and tiredness that accompanies them during the day.
This fatigue leads to the low resistance of fibromyalgia to the effort that affects up to 90 per cent of patients. Therefore, a report carried out by a team at the University of Granada and published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation journal in January 2011,Analyzed the resistance present in the hand of these patients to be used as a supplementary method in the assessment of fibromyalgia severity in women. The goal was to assess the strength test ability in the side, while distinguishing between the presence and absence of fibromyalgia and its severity in 81 women with the disease and 44 healthy women.
With the aid of a hand dynamometer, they measured the strength resistance in the hand with a test of maximum isometric force. Women were rated by the score of mild fibromyalgia (< 70) and extreme fibromyalgia (70 or more). The results they reported were:
The threshold strength resistance in the hand which best discriminates between fibromyalgia presence and absence was 23.1 kg.
The level at which serious and moderate fibromyalgia is better graded was 16.9 kg.
A hand strength resistance of 23.1 kg or less has been associated with having a 33.8-fold higher risk of fibromyalgia suffering after age limitation.
In the fibromyalgia community, extreme fibromyalgia correlated a force intensity in the hand of 16.9 kg or less with a 5.3 times higher likelihood of suffering.
The findings raised by these researchers are: that the resistance of the force in the hand is reduced in women with fibromyalgia and in those with extreme fibromyalgia in comparison to their moderate fibromyalgia partners .I also point out that those women who do not meet these suggested requirements will be able to direct the doctor to make a reasonable decision because it will be used as a useful and insightful tool. Do you find less resistance and power in your hands than your friends / family? Which aspects of everyday life is a disability? We hope you share your impressions with us, which we will send to our member patients.
