Fibromyalgia Fatigue: Causes And Management

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that causes pain in many parts of the body. It is characterized by general pain in the bones and muscles, fatigue, tenderness, as well as cognitive and sleep issues. This medical condition may be hard to understand, for both patients and doctors. The symptoms may resemble those of other diseases, and there are currently no definitive tests to diagnose it. Therefore, fibromyalgia is usually misdiagnosed. Most cases are reported in women in middle age, but it may also affect children. While it is challenging to treat fibromyalgia, many lifestyle changes, therapy, and medications are still available to improve the quality of life and manage the symptoms. [1]
