Understanding Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that affects the entire musculoskeletal system leading to pain, fatigue, tenderness, and cognitive difficulties. Patients become wary of taking an excessive amount of synthetic drugs and begin to search for natural pain solutions. Discover informative articles, helpful tips, and customer stories to help relieve your fibromyalgia.

Introduction to Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that involves widespread pain, which can lead to other symptoms:

 

  • Cognitive problems
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Morning stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Painful menstrual periods
  • Numbness
  • Sensitivity to temperature and noises

Fibromyalgia is considered a rheumatic condition (impairing the joints and soft tissues). However, fibromyalgia does not cause swelling or damage to the joints, muscles, or tissues.

 

There is no consensus regarding the causes of fibromyalgia, but speculations indicate that a lower level of brain neurotransmitters may lead to a lowered pain threshold and increased sensitivity in sufferers.
