Fibromyalgia, also known as fibrositis, is a condition that produces widespread muscle pain and tenderness. This disease typically affects patients between the ages of 35 – 45, but it can be present in younger individuals as well. The exact cause of the condition seems unclear, but doctors do believe it is the result of how the brain misinterprets or processes pain signals. Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include numbness, joint stiffness, soreness, muscle spasms, and overall discomfort in the muscles. Our skilled pain management physicians at Tricity Pain Associates are extremely knowledgeable and well-versed in all aspects of pain medicine to bring the relief you need.

"I was going to write a thank you letter to Dr V but I figured a public thank you would suffice much better and may help anyone looking for a pain specialist. So thank you Dr V for helping when no one else had been able to. For the past 5 years I have been in constant pain. I have lupus and fibromyalgia and have been to multiple specialists (not pain) for different ailments due to my illnesses and have been on many different medications that harmed me rather than helped me. Finally after trial and error my lupus was under control but my pain wasn't I finally got my rhuemys permission to see a pain Dr and it was Dr V. From the 1st day I saw him he knew right away from my records and tests what I needed and relieved some of my pain that very day with injections in my shoulder. From there he made a great plan and I've had 6 procedures (3 neck 3 back )over last 6 months and I can say for the first time in 5 years I have days with no pain. I was in then meantime able to wean off prednisone and lost 37 lbs and I've gotten some quality of life back and I no longer walk funny I can stand up straight now. When I came to him he not only helped with that he got me a better referral to a better rheumatologist being mine stopped practicing locally. He is patient caring and understanding and will listen to you as a patient and help you in any way he can. I frequent his seguin office and the Theda Oaks Surgery Center..His staff also was great in every step making sure my insurance was taking care of which no patient should have to worry about all that they all both places were also great. I thank God for bringing me to this doctor for God truly has shown me favor through Dr V in my care. Anyone looking for a great pain doctor need not look any further for I am proof of this. Again thank you Dr V."- R.K. / Google / Feb 14, 2019
