Fibromyalgia is a common disorder associated with general pains and aches of the muscles, tendons, soft tissues, as well as muscle stiffness, fatigue and poor sleep. Cause is currently unknown, but it is believed to be caused by stress, tension, fatigue, depression, and sleep disruption.
Young or middle-aged women tend to be 7 times more prone to suffering from fibromyalgia than men. Diagnosis is based on clinical findings. Fibromyalgia symptoms may disappear and re-appear at frequent intervals.
Treatment usually includes exercise, massage, stress management, analgesics and drugs to improve sleep.
