Fibromyalgia, an illness often diagnosed in conjunction with chronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by muscle pain. This pain may be all over the body or only in specific areas. The pain may be persistent or it may come and go. Muscles may feel like they have been overworked or pulled, even if there has been no physical exertion. People with fibromyalgia typically suffer from extreme fatigue and depression as well. Women are ten times more likely to get this disease than men. The symptoms of fibromyalgia may be similar to other diseases. To diagnose this condition a doctor will need to conduct a comprehensive physical exam (this may include blood tests), as well as a review of your medical history.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia syndrome may include some or all of the following:
- Wide-spread muscle and joint pain
- Muscle stiffness
- Feeling malaise after physical exertion
- Non-restorative, unfreshing sleep
- Frequent sore throat
- Cognitive difficulties, brain-fog
- Impaired memory and concentration
- Dryness in nose, mouth or eyes
- Mental and physical exhaustion
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Chronic headaches
