6 Fibromyalgia Signs

6 signs of fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is one of those diseases. It is a disorder of the muscles, joints and fibrous tissues. Back pain with fibromyalgia and weight loss with fibromyalgia. People often describe it as a state of feeling perpetually sick. Fibromyalgia affects around 2 to 8 percent of the world's population and can occur at any age, according to a 2014 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It is more common in women than in men.
Because their symptoms resemble common and everyday diseases that could indicate almost anything, people tend not to see them as a sign of something more serious.

Here are 10 signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia you should know.

1. Persistent generalized body pain

This is one of the main symptoms of fibromyalgia. People with fibromyalgia suffer persistent body pain that stretches around 18 specific parts of the body. These body parts can be sore when touched or lightly pressed on them.
According to a 2007 study published in the Journal of Rheumatology, fibromyalgia patients have chronic widespread pain and report between 11 and 18 sensitive points of the body. Although the intensity of the pain varies from person to person, it is generally described as a throbbing muscle pain.

2. Fatigue

Persistent fatigue is another key symptom of fibromyalgia and is the second most common.
Fatigue is one of the most common complaints among patients with fibromyalgia, but has received less attention than chronic body pain, according to a 2013 study published in Arthritis Research and Therapy and fibromyalgia and fibromyalgia muscle cramps and chronic fatigue syndrome.

3. Alterations of the dream

People with fibromyalgia have trouble falling asleep, and when they do, they have trouble keeping a deep sleep and wake up feeling powerless and low on energy.
Restless sleep, therefore, is another classic symptom of fibromyalgia, and clinical sleep studies also reveal that patients with fibromyalgia report erratic rhythms characteristic of disturbed sleep, according to a 2015 study published in Nature Reviews Rheumatology.
In patients with fibromyalgia, fibromyalgia and sleep, who endure pain and the combination of unrefreshing sleep, is a Herculean test. On the one hand, pain inhibits sleep and, on the other hand, lack of sleep increases pain.

4. headaches
Headaches are a common symptom that occurs in about half of fibromyalgia patients, according to a 2005 study published in Clinical Rheumatology.
The study indicates that of the 100 patients with fibromyalgia, 76 percent reported that headaches are a frequent symptom, 84 percent reported having severe headaches and 63 percent experienced migraines.
Chronic migraines (acute pain on one side of the head, often accompanied by nausea and aversion to bright lights and loud noises) and chronic tension-type headaches (regular) are common symptoms of fibromyalgia.

5. Depression and anxiety

Patients with fibromyalgia may have difficulty keeping their spirits high. In fact, fibromyalgia patients have a significantly higher risk of getting depressed, and depressed people have a higher risk of developing fibromyalgia, according to a 2015 study published in The Journal of Pain.
Depression in patients with fibromyalgia represents a serious risk of intensifying other symptoms, since a depressed person will have more difficulties to face other struggles. It can seriously ruin a person's mental well-being and make the person feel desperate and as a victim of the disease.

6. Sensory overload
People who suffer from fibromyalgia are often sensitive to cold, noise, bright light and movement. In fact, this complex disorder is linked to multiple chemical sensitivities (which are hypersensitive to certain chemicals and odors) in the therapy of fibromyalgia.

  1. ANY ROBOT VOICE INFORMATION IS IRRELEVANT TO ME AND GETS A BIG 🖕and👎 and of course no subrscription.
    I’m only listening to human beings bitch.

  2. This must be dated. It is a neurological condition and can be manifested from latent viral, bacterial, or fungal infections that your body is fighting. There are tests to see if you have something in your system that is causing you to keep fighting against an issue you don’t realize you may have. I’m waiting to see a doctor who does this testing and tests your DNA to see if you have an inability to fight off these illnesses. I hope to God, there is something I can do. I’ve had this since childhood plus autoimmune diseases that I’ve since acquired after putting toxic breast implants in my body for 15 years. The toxins created severe brain fog, narcolepsy, sleep apnea, tooth decay, and then my internal organs to start to fail; hence, a tonsillectomy at age 62, a total hysterectomy and appendectomy, and my gallbladder had to be removed, all within 5 months. Most of these organs are essential for your health. Then I had the implants removed, but I’m not totally recovered, so I’m pursuing the cause of my pain, sleep disorders, and other chronic issues. I wish I knew a few years ago what I know today.

  3. Fibromyalgia SUX!!! I live in pain with extreme fatigue. Brain fog, IBS, etc…..it all sucks!!! Nothing helps the pain. CBD helps me relax, but, does nothing for pain. I also have sleep apnea, arthritis, T2 diabetes. So, my plate is full!! Hope you’re having a low pain no flare day.

  4. I hurt all the time. I'm still not sure if it's fibromayalgia. Went to a doctor for my feet. They took x rays. I really thought I had just messed something up bc he thought I needed surgery. But retracted when xrays came back. Now he thinks I have this. I love working out but I pay for it later. It seems to just be in my feet, ankles, top of feet, toes, hands and wrist. I don't have pain anywhere else. My arms feel tight but not hurt and neither does my back. I sleep well and no IBS.

  5. SAY "NO!" TO ROBOTS! (Especially when they can't pronounce the name of the disease!) Fibro-myal-gy, NOT!

  6. I’ve had severe fibromyalgia at all 18 points and chronic pain due to severe arthritis and degenerative disc disease . I feel like princess and the pea I can’t stand a wrinkle or crumb in my bed but in my case sleep better in the cold as my body is always hot. Along with many other diseases I’m albino so I come with numerous other ailments like diabetes, IBS, high blood pressure from my pain staying so high from the pain I have. Chronic rhinitis , asthma, dupytrens contracture, chemical and drug sensitivity’s, migraines,muscle spasms from skull base to tailbone and have 8 differently ailments in my back and have had two surgeries on my back with one I was almost left a quadriplegic I had three disc replaced with cadaver disc and rods and pins and if I’m in any car accident I will be left paralyzed. To top it off our government wants to control how much opioids we get but this doesn’t stop those on recreational medicines. Stretching all day and certain vitamins and diet works for me and yoga. As many chronic sin sufferers in the US the government calls us all liars. I’m so tired of it.

  7. Take 500 mg magnesium daily and b12. Cured all my migrains , anxiety and panic attacks. Helps with body pain as does taking turmeric. The rx they test you on for fybro are psych meds and side effects are way worse. Had it for yrs and tried everything. Trust me, as of 2018…take no meds they push on you. Go holistic route

  8. I have one of the top ILADS doctors in the United States! Look up Dr. Horowitz! He sits on a health panel with the US government (Department of Health & Human Services) called Tick-Bourne Disease Working Group. He always uses IGENIX. Those articles you are reading are promoted by Chronic Lyme Disease deniers! I also am not promoting anything, I was initially diagnosed with just Fibromyalgia and I was not getting better. I even went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I did everything they said to do. Yet I was still suffering. Finally I found a doctor that was an expert in Lyme Disease because the symptoms of Lymes Disease and Fibromyalgia are very similar. Especially when you add in the symptoms of co-infections related to Lyme Disease! I got false negative tests for Lyme Disease. With IGENIX it was positive. I was treated for Lyme Disease with Natural Supplements and Antibiotics. Now I am cured and I no longer have the muscular and joint pain I had before! My body hurt so bad sometimes I was bed ridden for weeks! I am trying to help people. My husband is a Neuro Surgeon in the US and he does not believe that IGENIX is a scam! I am simply trying to help individuals who are in pain. Being in pain constantly can cause one to go mad However, this is my experience!

  9. For about a year now, I've had pains throughout my body. First started out in my leg, like a stabbing/deep pain that would come and go, sometimes unbearable and sometimes barely noticeable. It was around my calve and shin area only in the one leg. Since then I've had the same type of pain in my hip, in my other leg, my feet, and sometimes in my arms and hands. I went to the doctor a few times, and even had xrays on my leg, but nothing showed up. I still have the pain just about everyday, sometimes it's not too bad, but other days it comes in waves where it hurts so bad it's all I can think about. I'm 16 by the way. Does this sound like Fibromyalgia, and if not, do you have any other ideas? (also, I recently found out my grandma has fibromyalgia, but not sure her pain is like mine.)
