The most dominating symptom of Fibromyalgia is chronic pain. In some case it will start in a single are like the neck and shoulders and then spread to other areas over time, but in most cases it affects the entire body. According to Webster’s Dictionary, Fibromyalgia is defined as: A chronic disorder characterized by widespread pain, tenderness, and stiffness of muscles and associated connective tissue structures that is typically accompanied by fatigue, headache and sleep disturbances.
Do you or someone you know experience moderate to severe fatigue with reduced energy? Decreased stamina while exercising? Flu like exhaustion? At times, the exhaustion is worse than the pain.
Headaches, especially migraines, are especially common in fibromyalgia. Another common symptom is urinary urgency and/or frequency. Other symptoms include abdominal pain, alternating constipation and diarrhea, bloating, bladder spasms, irritability, and sensitivity to changes in temperature(resulting in changes in skin color).
How long have you or someone you know been suffering with fibromyalgia? No matter what the answer is it is too long. Some patients suffer only minor symptoms while others are kept from participating in their daily lives, even simple daily tasks become impossible.
