Symptoms of Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia pain is often described as a dull ache in the muscles all over the body. Sufferers of fibromyalgia can experience these dull aches or pains easily. A touch, a grab of the arm or even bumping into something can be extremely painful for a person suffering with fibromyalgia. Patients with fibromyalgia also have tender points on their body where they feel intense pain. These points are located in the neck, shoulders, upper chest, hips, elbows and knees.
Pain may get worse with activity, cold or damp weather, anxiety and stress. Fatigue, depressed mood and sleep problems often occur with fibromyalgia. Many people say that they can’t get to sleep or stay asleep, and they feel tired when they wake up. Fibromyalgia is most common among women ages 20 to 50.
Causes of Fibromyalgia
Most researchers believe fibromyalgia is developed from intense trauma to the patient’s body. Fibromyalgia can also appear from great emotional trauma; many sufferers of post-traumatic stress have also shown a link with fibromyalgia. It has been shown that genetics may have some role in the development of fibromyalgia in some cases as well; certain genetic mutations can make individuals more receptive to the condition.
Possible causes or triggers of fibromyalgia:
- Physical or emotional trauma
- Abnormal pain response (Areas in the brain that control pain may react differently in people with fibromyalgia.)
- Sleep disturbances
- Infection or virus
