Fibromyalgia is a common chronic pain disorder that causes widespread tenderness and pain over your entire body. While fibromyalgia is not a form of arthritis because it does not cause inflammation or joint damage, it does cause compelling pain and fatigue that can interfere with a person’s daily activities.
In addition to intense pain and fatigue, people with fibromyalgia may experience different symptoms including weather and temperature sensitivity, migraines, memory problems, sleep disturbances and more.
There isn’t any one single explanation for the causes of fibromyalgia. As a result, there isn’t any one specific treatment that is always efficient at healing the disorder. Therefore, a comprehensive treatment plan works best at managing the multiple pain symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia Pain Symptoms
Fibromyalgia causes widespread pain in muscles, tendons and joints with feelings of fatigue, sleep issues and can even be linked with irritable bowel syndrome. It can also develop tender points — places on your body where even slight pressure is extremely painful.
Fatigue is seen in about 90 percent of fibromyalgia patients and can be related to unnatural sleep patterns. Patients with fibromyalgia don’t get enough restorative sleep, leading to chronic fatigue symptoms. The following symptoms can also be seen in fibromyalgia patients:
- Poor Concentration
- Memory Problems
- Mood Changes
- Bladder Problems
- Tingling or Numbness Sensations
- Abdominal Pain
