Fibromyalgia is a disorder that occurs in muscles. Those with fibromyalgia experience widespread musculoskeletal pain, some tenderness in certain areas and often fatigue. Fibromyalgia causes individuals to have stiffness, headaches, numbness or tingling of hands and feet, and troubles sleeping.
Fibromyalgia can lead to additional conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or restless leg syndrome. Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.
While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.
