Fibromyalgia – College of Rheumatology

What is Fibromyalgia & What are it’s Symptoms?

According to the College of Rheumatology, who first defined Fibromyalgia in 1990, Fibromyalgia is a common, chronic health problem that causes widespread pain (pain all over the body), tenderness affecting muscles and sometimes joints and/or skin, and other symptoms such as severe fatigue, memory or thinking problems, and sleep problems. The pain and tenderness tend to come and go, and move about the body. Most often, people with this chronic (long-term) illness are fatigued (very tired) and have sleep problems.
