The Fibromyalgia blog aims to provide information about this illness. It is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain around the body.
Diagnosing can be difficult because there is no specific test to diagnose the condition.
The main symptoms of fibromyalgia are pain and tenderness in muscles & joints throughout your body. This pain shifts from place to place, but to meet the criteria for the diagnosis, you’ll need to experience pain for at least three months.
This pain must occur in a number of body parts and it has to be above a specific severity score. In addition, you mustn’t have another condition, such as arthritis, that could explain your pain.
The Fibromyalgia blog explains how pain can be very intense and constant. This pain can be severe enough to keep you at home, away from work and other activities.
