Fibro Mialgia

Were you looking for information about Fibromyalgia? Fibro mialgia is a common misspelling of fibromyalgia.
 
Fibromyalgia is a common and chronic condition that is characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and tender points where people feel pain in response to light pressure. Although it is often thought of as an arthritis-related condition, it is not a form of arthritis because it does not cause inflammation or damage to the joints, muscles, or other tissues.
 
However, it is considered a rheumatic condition because it does impair the joints and/or soft tissues and causes chronic pain. Some options for treating this condition include lifestyle changes, medications, and alternative treatments.
 
Most people are diagnosed with this condition in middle age. It is estimated that 80 to 90 percent of people with this disorder are women, although it is not known why. This condition is believed to occur in as many as 1 in 50 Americans.
