Fibromyalgia is a medical disorder characterized by chronic whole body pain and sensitivity to pressure or touch. These symptoms are not just restricted to joints of the body but different tissues such as ligament, and muscle tissue as well.
Other symptoms can include severe debilitating fatigue, joint stiffness,and sleep disturbances. Some fibromyalgia sufferers may even suffer from digestive abnormalities, bladder disturbances, numbness and tingling and cognitive dysfunction.
In addition, fibromyalgia patients often report suffering from chronic anxiety and stress and often times are prescribed anti-anxiety and depression medication. Because there can be several factors that contribute to a patient being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, it’s important to work with a specialist who understands these unique factors.
