Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle and skeletal pain throughout the body. Other symptoms can include fatigue and problems with sleep, memory, and mood. The initial trigger for the disorder may be a physical trauma, surgery, infection, or severe psychological distress. But there isn’t always a clear cause, sometimes symptoms gradually appear with no apparent reason.
Fibromyalgia can be treated with medication and consistent self-care. While no one treatment works for every symptom, treatments are designed to minimize symptoms and improve overall health.
