Discussion Of Chronic Pain Fibromyalgia


  1. Pain is the most frequent symptom of fibromyalgia besides sleep disruption. Pain is generally described as all over body pain, and often occurs when pressure is applied to the common areas affected, like the knees, hips, back of elbows, the head, or even the neck. Because of the chronic pain associated with this condition, fatigue also is a primary symptom, as patients aren't getting adequate sleep, and are exhausted from chronic pain. The back, shoulders, and neck are common areas affected, and as a result, headaches may be a result of fibromyalgia as well. In addition, an increased sensitivity to smells, touch, noise or lights may be experienced as well.
