What is Fibromyalgia?

Imagine waking up feeling like you've been run over by a truck. That achy, tender feeling throughout your body? That's a hallmark symptom of fibromyalgia. The pain can be constant or come and go, often shifting location.

But fibromyalgia isn't just about pain. It's a complex condition that can also cause:

  • Extreme fatigue: Even after a good night's sleep, exhaustion can linger.
  • Sleep problems: Falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up unrefreshed are common struggles.
  • Cognitive difficulties: Memory, focus, and concentration can become a daily challenge.
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Mood swings: Anxiety and depression often accompany fibromyalgia.
  • Bowel and bladder issues


Who Gets Fibromyalgia?

While anyone can develop fibromyalgia, it's more common in:

  • Women: They are more likely to be diagnosed than men.
  • People over 50: Risk increases with age.
  • Those with a family history: Having a close relative with fibromyalgia raises your risk.
  • Individuals with certain medical conditions: Arthritis or lupus can increase your chances.
