Fibromyalgia is a widely misunderstood and sometimes misdiagnosed chronic condition, commonly characterized by widespread muscle pain, fatigue, concentration issues, and sleep problems. Because it is a chronic condition, in most cases, fibromyalgia symptoms never disappear entirely. The good news is that fibromyalgia isn’t progressive or life-threatening, and treatments can help alleviate many symptoms.

What causes Fibromyalgia

The symptoms of fibromyalgia and their severity vary widely, although pain and fatigue are nearly always present. Major symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

* Pain. Some fibromyalgia patients report discomfort in one or more specific areas of their body, while others may experience overall pain in their muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

* Certain areas, such as the back of the head, upper back and neck, elbows, hips, and knees may be particularly sensitive and are described clinically as tender points. The degree and type of pain can range from aching, tenderness, and throbbing to sharper shooting and stabbing sensations. Intense burning, numbness, and tingling may also be present.

* Fatigue. If you’ve ever been knocked off your feet by a bad case of the flu, you have a general idea of how tired some people with fibromyalgia can feel. Though some fibromyalgia patients experience only mild fatigue, many report feeling completely drained of energy, both physically and mentally, to the point that exhaustion interferes with all daily activities.

* Memory problems. Difficulty concentrating and remembering are common cognitive symptoms in people with fibromyalgia.

* Sleep disturbances. Research has shown that the deepest stages of sleep in patients with fibromyalgia are constantly interrupted by bursts of brain activity, causing feelings of exhaustion even after a seemingly good night’s rest. Other problems such as sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome are also common among fibromyalgia sufferers.

Other common symptoms: Headaches, migraines, and facial pain. Depression, anxiety, or mood changes. Painful menstrual periods, Dizziness, Dry mouth, eyes, and skin. Heightened sensitivity to noise, odors, bright lights, and touch

Fibromyalgia Risk Factors

A number of factors can increase the odds that you may develop fibromyalgia. These include:

* Gender. Fibromyalgia is more common among women than men.
* Age. Symptoms usually appear during middle age, but can also manifest in children and older adults.
* History of rheumatic disease. People who have been diagnosed with a rheumatic disorder — conditions affecting the heart, bones, joints, kidney, skin, and lungs — such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and lupus are at increased risk of also developing fibromyalgia.
* Family history. Having a relative who suffers from fibromyalgia puts you at increased risk.
* Sleep problems. Doctors aren’t sure whether sleep disturbances are a cause or a symptom of fibromyalgia — but sleep disorders, including restless legs syndrome and sleep apnea have been cited as possible fibromyalgia triggers.

What causes Fibromyalgia?

While there is a lot of ongoing speculation about what triggers fibromyalgia, its causes have yet to be definitively identified and confirmed. Recent research has generally found that fibromyalgia is most likely a result of what scientists call central sensitization, or unusual responses in the nervous system with regard to pain perception.


Conventional drug therapy may include:
•tricyclic antidepressants in low doses to help reduce pain and promote sleep
•sedatives to help fibromyalgia sufferers sleep
•local anesthetics injected into tender points to relieve pain. While drug therapy can provide some short-term relief, non-drug treatments are usually the most helpful.

Acupuncture and acupressure treatments can be used to reduce the pain of fibromyalgia and promote a natural sedative effect. Acupuncture points also are used to tonify the body leading to increased energy.

Systemic enzyme therapy can assist in pain and inflammation reduction and assists in liver detoxification.

Calcium and magnesium supplements in a proper dosage help to promote muscle relaxation and blood flow and thus reduce muscle pain.

Awareness of emotional, mental, and physical stressors in life is crucial to a healthy body. Stress is a big factor in triggering or exacerbating symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.

Detoxification of the body can also help alleviate symptoms. Use of a combination of nutrients, herbs, systemic enzymes, and IV therapy promote the body's natural detoxification process and remove toxins that can cause muscle pain.

Thankfully I've never spoken to anyone who's had all 63 symptoms at the same time .. :D

But, I find I can have up to 6 or so at a time .. and they can vary from morning to afternoon to evening ,, and you never know what is coming next .. every day when you wake up it's usually with a different combination of symptoms .. forward planning for any outing is impossible as you never know had bad you might feel on that day .. :?

It was a huge relief to me when I found this list 10 years ago ... I had thought I was going mad .. itchy skin, tingling, eyes long sighted one day and short sighted the next .. hair falling out in clumps .. weird pains .. etc etc ... least I knew what to expect .. and started to develop 'coping strategies' for the various symptoms .. :D
