Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that causes you to feel pain all over your body. While researchers are still trying to uncover the mechanism behind the pain, it’s believed that your brain amplifies the pain signals received from your nerve endings, causing you to feel pain more intensely.
You may develop fibromyalgia from a number of causes, such as:
You are more likely to develop fibromyalgia if you have other health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Risk of fibromyalgia also tends to increase as you get older.
Widespread pain is the most well-known symptom of fibromyalgia, but you may also experience other symptoms. Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
You may also experience other types of pain-causing disorders with your fibromyalgia, such as irritable bowel syndrome, temporomandibular joint disease, or interstitial cystitis.
If you’ve suffered from widespread pain for three months or more without any known underlying cause, you may have fibromyalgia.
