Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a disorder known for widespread musculoskeletal pain, and is accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.

Symptoms can be triggered after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. Or, they can gradually increase over time.

Symptoms

Widespread pain. The pain is described as a constant dull ache that has lasted for at least three months. The pain must occur on both sides of your body, above and below your waist to be categorized as widespread pain.

Fatigue. Even if they sleep the night through, sufferers often wake feeling tired. Sleep may be disrupted by pain, and many patients with fibromyalgia have other sleep disorders.

Cognitive difficulties. Commonly referred to as “fibro fog” it impairs the ability to focus, pay attention and concentrate on mental tasks.

Other problems. Many people who have fibromyalgia also may experience depression, headaches, TMJ/TMD, IBS and pain or cramping in the lower abdomen.
