Fibromyalgia, otherwise spelled out as FM or FMS, is popularly characterized by a chronic discomfort caused by allodynia – a typically painful response to pressure. It affects 2-4% of the current world population, with a 9:1 female to male occurrence ratio.
For its many symptoms, there is no known definite cause for Fibromyalgia. Experts believe, however, that whatever leads to the development of the condition include psychological, neurobiological, genetic, and environmental factors.
The telling symptom of Fibromyalgia is the widespread pain and discomfort result from a recurring neurochemical imbalance. This neurochemical imbalance has been observed to stimulate the activation of inflammatory pathways, which triggers abnormalities in pain processing. As such, experts have observed and noted a series of functional and structural differences between the brains of people who are affected with Fibromyalgia and those who are free from the condition.
Among the most popular and observable symptoms of Fibromyalgia includes chronic fatigue, restless sleep, and persistent stiffness of the joints. Other known symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia include difficulty in swallowing, difficult bowel movement, and persistent bladder abnormalities.
Apart from the abovementioned, other symptoms still associated with Fibromyalgia include bladder irregularities, frequent tingling, numbness, and cognitive dysfunction. Fibromyalgia is also commonly observed to be comorbid with psychiatric condition such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
