Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Syndrome is a condition affecting the muscles and soft tissue. The syndrome causes widespread muscle and joint pain, leading to fatigue. Fibromyalgia is one of the most common musculoskeletal conditions diagnosed. The disease is frequently misdiagnosed and misunderstood. Fibromyalgia leads to depression and social isolation. Women are more prone to suffer from fibromyalgia than men.

Researchers are of the opinion that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the manner in which the brain processes pain signals.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia typically begin after:

  • A physical trauma
  • A surgery
  • An infection
  • A significant psychological stress

Symptoms can also accumulate gradually over time with no triggering event.
