Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and sudden mood swings. People with this condition have abnormal pain perception processing, meaning that they are more sensitive to pain than people without fibromyalgia.
The most prominent symptoms of fibromyalgia are stiffness and pain throughout the body, severe fatigue, sleep disorders, memory and recurrent mood swings. Other less common symptoms are migraines, pain in the jaw, bloating, anxiety, depression, and irritable bowel syndrome.
There is no known cure for fibromyalgia, but a variety of treatments such as medication like prescribed drugs and pain relievers as well as different types of therapy (physical, occupational or self management strategies) including aerobic exercises, good sleep habits, cognitive behavioral therapy and stress management techniques can help manage the condition.
