Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is believed to heighten the body’s sense of pain by changing how the brain processes pain. After osteoarthritis, it is the most common musculoskeletal condition causing achiness and pain over the entire body. Symptoms for this type of condition include:

  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep loss
  • Memory issues
  • Troubles with mood
  • Pain feeling comes easy
  • Tender points on body

Symptoms for fibromyalgia are most commonly felt after intense trauma to the body from things like surgery, infections, intense physical accident, or great psychological stress. But other times, these symptoms can take time to reveal themselves without a major event. Genetics also seem to have a role in the development of fibromyalgia. There are some genetic mutations that can make individuals more vulnerable to this condition.
