Although the causes of fibromyalgia are unknown, researchers believe the chronic condition may be linked to problems with the nervous system's ability to process pain. Symptoms of fibromyalgia can include widespread pain, fatigue, headaches, and problems with memory. The disorder is common, affecting up to 3 million to 6 million people, with approximately 80 to 90 percent of those being women (for unknown reasons).
People with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or spinal arthritis may also be more likely to have fibromyalgia. There are many things you can do to relieve the pain due to fibromyalgia, such as exercising, eating well, taking medications as prescribed, and getting enough sleep. Complementary and alternative treatments may also be used for the treatment of fibromyalgia.
