Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain and tenderness throughout the body. It's most known for its impact on muscles and bones, but can also affect energy levels, sleep quality, mood, and memory.

The exact cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown, but researchers believe it's linked to how the brain and spinal cord process pain signals. Genetics, past illnesses, physical or emotional trauma, and stress are all thought to play potential roles.

There's no cure for fibromyalgia, but treatments can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life. These include medications to ease pain and improve sleep, exercise programs to strengthen muscles and reduce stiffness, and therapy to address stress and emotional wellbeing.

Here's a breakdown of the key features of fibromyalgia:

  • Pain: The most common symptom is a widespread dull ache lasting for at least 3 months. Pain can be on both sides of the body and above and below the waist.
  • Fatigue: People with fibromyalgia often experience tiredness, even after getting enough sleep. Disrupted sleep due to pain can worsen fatigue.
  • Other symptoms: Fibromyalgia can also cause cognitive difficulties like trouble concentrating or remembering things. Mood problems like anxiety and depression are also common.

While fibromyalgia can be challenging, with proper management many people are able to lead active and fulfilling lives.
