Experience and understanding in managing fibromyalgia

If you or someone you might know who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you are probably concerned about what this condition means for you. The disorder still remains obscure with many questions still left unanswered. An estimated 5 percent of Americans, primarily women, have fibromyalgia syndrome.

Fibromyalgia is commonly prevalent in patients with:

  • Generalized pain in all 4 quadrants of the body for at least 3 months
  • Soreness or pain in at least 11 out of 18 tender points when there is applied pressure. These tender points come together around the neck, shoulder, chest, hip, knee, and elbow

Common symptoms of fibromyalgia

  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Chronic headaches
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Cognitive or memory impairment
  • Malaise and muscle pain after exertion
  • Jaw pain
  • Morning stiffness
  • Menstrual cramping
  • Irritable bowels
  • Numbness and tingling sensations
  • Skin and chemical sensitivities
