Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome that causes pain in the soft tissue around joints, in the skin and organs. The pain is usually widespread and can vary greatly from day to day in the same patient. Some days it will cause moderate discomfort and other days it can be totally disabling. Some patients experience other problems as well such as:
- Tingling sensations
- Memory problems
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Irritable Bladder Syndrome
There are no known tests for the condition and no known cure. Quite often it means months of suffering for the patient, before any sort of medical help is given.
