So what is fibromyalgia? Quite simply put, its a disease that affects the bones and muscles. Doctors don’t know what causes the disease yet; however, there is some evidence that it is caused because the brain receives pain signals improperly, resulting in amplification of sensation. Genetics may play a role, as well. Women seem to develop fibromyalgia more often than men and people who are less active or suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.
Unfortunately, there is no definitive test to diagnose fibromyalgia; instead, doctors may use extensive testing to rule out other conditions based on the nature of the symptoms and form a diagnosis. Regardless of the cause, the symptoms are debilitating, to say the least.
Those who suffer from fibromyalgia develop chronic pain and fatigue and may find that their ability to perform at work or enjoy everyday activities is greatly impacted. Because fibromyalgia causes tenderness to the body, patients may experience problems sleeping or concentrating.
