Fibromyalgia is a very common medical condition affecting the muscles and bones. As the second most common musculoskeletal condition, fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood by traditional medicine. For those living with fibromyalgia, the pain and fatigue they experience can be great and at this time, there is no cure for the disorder.
What are the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia?
With fibromyalgia, patients complain of aches and pains all over the body. Other common symptoms include:
- Draining fatigue
- Muscle pain
- Burning, twitching or tightness in the muscles
- Insomnia or trouble sleeping
- Anxiety and depression
- Trouble focusing or remembering things (often referred to as “fibro fog”)
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
Unfortunately, the root cause of fibro-related pain has not been determined at this time. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia may be a result of an issue with how the brain and spinal cord process pain signals from the nerves.
