Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
There is no known cure for fibromyalgia and it barely has been legitimately recognized. Fibromyalgia has only RECENTLY become officially recognized as an official disability, yet it is still one of the hardest things to get approval for disability for. This is a VERY crucial thing to have, and no one can pinpoint a single cause or the disorder.

Is also associated with Fibromyalgia. However, I also have a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can't be explained by an underlying medical condition. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity but doesn't improve with rest.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome occurs more commonly in women. The cause of this condition is unknown but may include environmental or genetic factors. The main symptom is extreme, uncontrollable fatigue for over six months.
Women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, and depression.
While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.
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.
Fibromyalgia often co-exists with other painful conditions.
Doctors don't know what causes fibromyalgia, but it most likely involves a variety of factors working together. These may include:
- Genetics. Because fibromyalgia tends to run in families, there may be certain genetic mutations that may make you more susceptible to developing the disorder.
- Infections. Some illnesses appear to trigger or aggravate fibromyalgia.
- Physical or emotional trauma. Fibromyalgia can sometimes be triggered by physical trauma, such as a car accident. Psychological stress may also trigger the condition.
