Were you looking for information about Fibromyalgia? Fibromyalia is a common misspelling of fibromyalgia.
 
Fibromyalgia is a common condition that affects 3 to 6 million people in the United States. It is a chronic disease characterized by widespread muscle pain, multiple tender points, and fatigue. Although fibromyalgia is often considered an arthritis-related condition, it is not truly a form of arthritis because it does not cause inflammation or damage to the joints, muscles, or other tissues. To help relieve the pain associated with this condition, healthcare providers often recommend medications, lifestyle changes, and complementary or alternative treatments.
