This condition can significantly impact daily activities but it is not progressive and normally does not cause damage to any areas.

The cause of fibromyalgia is still unknown. Research indicates an infection, major stress such as an accident or operation and depression have been linked as triggers to this condition.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia may include:

  • Severe fatigue (tiredness)
  • Muscle, tendon and ligament pain in any area of your body
  • Sleep problems
  • Inability to think clearly or remember things (sometimes called fibro-fog)

Since these symptoms could be a result of many conditions, it is important to get an accurate diagnosis from an expert.Treatment may include prescription medication, physiotherapy and talking therapy for treatment of depression or major trauma.
