The 411 on Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a type of soft-tissue rheumatism (possibly caused by an invading organism), which is a broad classification used to describe conditions that cause pain and stiffness in the joints as well as the muscles and bones. The most prominent symptom of this condition is widespread pain that occurs all over the body and lasts for several months to years. This pain may be specifically felt on the body’s tender points: areas around the head, neck, shoulders, buttocks, elbows, and knees. Fibromyalgia is usually accompanied by fatigue and even depression. It is a commonly misunderstood and misdiagnosed disease that requires special care and lifestyle changes for treatment.
