    Fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes widespread muscular and skeletal pain. Those affected also tend to have sleep, memory and mood irregularities. Researchers believe it is a condition that affects the way pain signals are processed in the brain, therefore leading to increased painful sensations. Also, the areas affected by pain can migrate and change with intensity over time.

    • Pain when touched
    • Fatigue
    • Sleep disturbances
    • Cognitive difficulties
    • Stiffness
    • Depression and/or anxiety
    • Migraines and tension headaches
    • Pelvic pain
    • Irritable bowel syndrome

    There are no cures for fibromyalgia but there are treatments that can lessen symptoms. These include:

    • Pain relievers
    • Anti-seizure drugs
    • Antidepressants
    • Physical therapy
    • Counseling
    • Occupational therapy
