Fibromyalgia Q&A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a disorder in which bodywide pain disrupts your life. Nearly 3% of people worldwide have fibromyalgia, and it's especially common in women. The actual number of fibromyalgia sufferers in the world may be even higher because there's no one test to diagnose this condition.  

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Common fibromyalgia symptoms include:

Pain

Fibromyalgia pain occurs in multiple areas at once. It affects both sides of the body equally and occurs in both the top and bottom halves of the body. 

Medical providers may diagnose fibromyalgia if you have pain in four or more specific areas, including the upper left, upper right, lower left, lower right, and axial (neck, back, chest, or abdomen) regions of your body for three months or longer. You may also need the FM/a blood test to verify a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. 

Fatigue

Fatigue is a common issue with fibromyalgia. You might wake up feeling exhausted or experience drowsiness during the day. This is usually directly related to nighttime pain that prevents restful sleep.

Fibro fog

Fibro fog is a common nickname for a general brain fog that prevents you from focusing, shortens your attention span, and disrupts your mental clarity. 

You're very likely to experience other problems at the same time as fibromyalgia symptoms, including headaches, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, and other health difficulties.
