How Does Fibromyalgia Affect Sexual Function

Fibromyalgia is so much more than chronic pain and discomfort. It is a condition that affects nearly all the aspects of life, from emotional health to financial stability. But what can you do when fibromyalgia becomes an issue in the bedroom?

One of the most frustrating things about fibromyalgia is that people on the outside can not truly understand what a fibromyalgia sufferer is feeling. For example, if someone breaks a leg it is obvious and other people can sympathize. When the pain is internal, everything appears to be ok on the outside.

Why Fibromyalgia Leads to Intimacy Issues

There are a few reasons why fibromyalgia can create intimacy issues. Everyone has days where they just don’t feel like being intimate. For people with fibromyalgia, this is a frequent feeling. Chronic pain can lead to depression and a loss of sexual drive. It is important for your partner to know that it is not personal and communication is very important.

Medication and Fibromyalgia

Some pain medication can interfere with sexual desire. If you are taking prescription pain pills, you should be aware of any possible side effects.

There are some things you can do to help prevent fibromyalgia pain from having a negative impact on your relationships.

First, there are natural pain fighting supplements that do not have the same side effects. You can learn more about natural pain formulas here.
