What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is also called fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). This disorder intensifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. It is a long-term condition characterized by musculoskeletal pain with fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues.

People with this ailment may suffer from muscle stiffness, difficulty sleeping, headaches, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Problems with mental processes known as Fibro-Fog is also a symptom associated with this condition. Such a problem impairs the ability to pay attention and concentrate on mental tasks.

It is also believed that some people are more likely to develop this because of factors like age and genes inherited from their parents. In most cases, the condition manifests because of a stressful physical or emotional event. These events could be; an infection or injury, surgery, giving birth, and trauma.
