Although most of those affected will have to live with pain the rest of their lives, symptoms can be reduced with appropriate medical intervention and life-style changes. Musculoskeletal complaints often respond to anti-inflammatory agents, particularly non-steroidals in standard doses. Drug treatment may be accompanied by physiotherapy or massage therapy.
