Fibromyalgia, You Can Have Relief From The Pain

Fibromyalgia, You Can Have Relief From The Pain

Fibromyalgia is a chronic medical issue causing widespread fatigue and pain, stiffness and fatigue. Sufferers often experience sleep problems and psychological disorders, such as anxiety and depression. In addition to affecting the soft tissues and muscles throughout the body, fibromyalgia intensifies the level of pain felt by the patient. Researchers have found that this disorder affects the pain receptors in the brain. The symptoms associated with fibromyalgia can vary from person to person and can include both physical and psychological symptoms.

 Symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

 Widespread pain. The pain associated with fibromyalgia often is described as a constant dull ache that has lasted for at least three months. To be considered widespread, the pain must occur on both sides of your body and above and below your waist.

  • Fatigue. People with fibromyalgia often awaken tired, even though they report sleeping for long periods of time. Sleep is often disrupted by pain, and many patients with fibromyalgia have other sleep disorders, such as restless legs syndrome and sleep apnea.
  • Cognitive difficulties. A symptom commonly referred to as "fibro fog" impairs the ability to focus, pay attention and concentrate on mental tasks.
  • Stiffness throughout the body, including headaches, stomach pain, neck pain and pain in the extremities.

 Fibromyalgia often co-exists with other painful conditions, such as:

 Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Migraine and other types of headaches
  • Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome
  • Temporomandibular joint disorders
