Fibromyalgia is a common condition associated with muscular pain and fatigue. It occurs more commonly in women than in men especially in women of childbearing age. Fibromyalgia is a form of soft-tissue rheumatism, a broad term including a group of disorders that cause pain and stiffness around the joints and in muscles and bones.


Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Widespread musculoskeletal pain is the most prominent symptom of fibromyalgia. Most individuals complain of aching and stiffness in areas around the neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back and hip areas. It generally occurs throughout the body, although it may start in one region, such as the neck and shoulders, and may spread over a period of time. It can be treated through Fibromyalgia Treatment in Dubai by Dr. Humeira Badsha.


Fibromyalgia pain has been described in a variety of ways, such as burning, gnawing, aching, or as stiffness or soreness. It often varies according to time of the day, activity level, the weather, sleep patterns and stress. Most people with fibromyalgia say that some degree of pain always is present. They feel the pain mainly in their muscles. For some people, the pain may be quite severe.


  1. Fatigue and Sleep Disturbances: Most people with fibromyalgia have fatigue, decreased endurance, or the kind of exhaustion felt with the flu or lack of sleep. Sometimes the fatigue is severe and a much greater problem than the pain. Most people with fibromyalgia tendonitis experience sleeping problems. Although they may be able to fall asleep without major difficulty, they sleep lightly and wake up frequently during the night. They often wake up feeling tired, even after sleeping through the night. The tiredness can range from listlessness and decreased endurance to exhaustion, and can vary from one day to the next.


  1. Nervous System Symptoms: Changes in mood are a common symptom of fibromyalgia. Feelings of sadness or being down are common and some people with fibromyalgia have depression. People with fibromyalgia also may feel anxious. Some researchers think there is a link between fibromyalgia and certain forms of depression and chronic anxiety. However, any person with a chronic illness – not just fibromyalgia – may feel depressed at times while struggling with their pain and fatigue. People with fibromyalgia may have difficulty concentrating or performing simple mental tasks.    These problems tend to come and go and are often most prominent at times of extreme fatigue or anxiety.


  1. Other Problems: Headaches, especially tension headaches and migraine headaches, are common in people with fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating and alternating constipation and diarrhea (called irritable bowel syndrome or spastic colon) also are common. Bladder spasms and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Additional problems that may be associated with fibromyalgia include cramps, dizziness, pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), hands, arms, feet, legs or face.
