Fibromyalgia is the term given to a chronic condition marked by pain and stiffness in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Although fibromyalgia may leave you feeling achy over your whole body, you're most likely to feel sharper pain where muscles attach to joints or in muscle areas called trigger points; places that may be especially painful include the elbow, forearm, hip, knee, shoulder, neck, jaw, and back. Fatigue and difficulty sleeping are other common symptoms. Research in sleep labs has shown that people with fibromyalgia don't get enough deep sleep, and their sleep is frequently interrupted; they often wake up in the morning feeling unrefreshed. In some people, fibromyalgia may also be associated with depression, anxiety, headaches, problems with the digestive system, and other troubles.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
There is no specific cause for Fibromyalgia, but it may be triggered by a traumatic injury, stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, or certain viral infections.
