What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Doctors believe that fibromyalgia intensifies and augments painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes these signals.

While there is no know cause of fibromyalgia there are a variety of valid theories that doctors and researchers have come up with to help narrow the causes. Some doctors believe hormonal or chemical imbalances may disrupt the way nerves transmit pain signals. Others suggest traumatic events or chronic stress may increase a person’s susceptibility. Most experts agree that fibromyalgia probably results from a combination of factors, rather than a single cause.
