Fibromyalgia is a medical condition known for chronic pain throughout the body, accompanied by tenderness around the joints, muscles, tendons and soft tissues.
There is no specific, proven cause for fibromyalgia. The condition is believed to be associated with an amplification of the brain’s pain sensors, causing an increase in painful sensations felt throughout the body.
This causes those who are suffering from fibromyalgia to constantly feel tired, with aching bodies and sore areas that become more painful from contact. This condition can lead to a whole host of physical ailments that can make it difficult for people to go about their daily routines. The chronic aches and pains along with other complications related to Fibromyalgia result in a lower quality of life.
Constant fatigue and trouble sleeping are signs of fibromyalgia. Many people who have this condition often feel tired or sleepy even after they’ve had a good night’s sleep. To most people, a good night’s sleep consists of 7-9 hours of sleep, but to people with fibromyalgia, a good night’s sleep may consist of 10-12 hours of sleep. A person’s sleep is most often affected by fibromyalgia, which can lead to other physical ailments and a person’s quality of life.
