What is Fibromyalgia?
The most common musculoskeletal condition worldwide, fibromyalgia is a long-term (chronic) disease, with symptoms that include widespread muscle and joint discomfort, as well as general fatigue, and areas that are tender. There is no proven cause of fibromyalgia, and the illness can be misdiagnosed as signs are subjective to each case and cannot be measured through testing.
Added symptoms of fibromyalgia include sleeping issues, headaches, dull ache or pain in the lower abdomen, difficulty in focusing and paying attention, anxiety, and depression.
