Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic condition which predominantly affects women. The latest statistics show us that 9 out of every 10 sufferers are women. Fibromyalgia used to be known as fibrositis, however, as more is learnt about this condition, it was re-named to Fibromyalgia.
While this condition does not affect the sufferer’s life span, full recovery from Fibromyalgia is very uncommon and where this happens, the likelihood of a recurrence is very high.
What are the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia?
The main symptom of Fibromyalgia is that of pain, tender areas of the body and tiredness. However, the symptoms which each patient suffers from vary in both number and degree. The severity of the symptoms can vary due to the level of stress or sometimes the weather.
