Fibromyalgia Symptoms
The universal symptom of fibromyalgia is pain. As mentioned earlier, the pain in fibromyalgia is not caused by tissue inflammation. Instead, these patients seem to have an increased sensitivity to many different sensory stimuli and an unusually low pain threshold. Minor sensory stimuli that ordinarily would not cause pain in individuals can cause disabling, sometimes severe pain in patients with fibromyalgia. The body pain of fibromyalgia can be aggravated by noise, weather change, and emotional stress.

Find out how your symptoms and treatment plan measure up with others. Take our survey now and view the results. Fibromyalgia produces widespread pain, disturbed sleep, and exhaustion from head to toe. Although the muscles hurt everywhere, they are not the only cause of your discomfort. Instead, the diffuse, body-wide symptoms are greatly magnified by malfunctions in the way the nervous system processes pain. Regional muscle pain also occurs in the majority of people with fibromyalgia. Patients experience firm knots in their muscles, often causing restricted movement and radiating pain. Recent research has found that 90 percent of the tender points used to diagnose fibro are actually myofascial trigger points. The symptoms of fibromyalgia are unpredictable and most patients are frustrated by their physical limitations and inability to make plans. You may feel as though you have to "push yourself" to get things done.

    zSB(3,3) Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic condition that causes intense pain in various places around the body, including muscles, connective tissues and joints, as well as a host of other symptoms. It affects more than 6 million people in the United States. Doctors classify fibromyalgia as a syndrome, which means it has a group of signs, symptoms and characteristics that occur together. Experts are investigating a new blood test that may be able to detect fibromyalgia in up to 50% of sufferers. While this may be available to some patients, others still will have no definitive medical evidence that they're sick. To make a diagnosis , doctors usually rely on signs and symptoms alone. Complicating the matter, symptoms vary widely from person to person and often, as do their intensity.

      What is fibromyalgia?
      Fibromyalgia is a long-term (chronic) condition that can cause widespread muscle pain. There aren't usually any outward signs of fibromyalgia, but the pain and tiredness associated with it are very real. In the past, other terms were used for fibromyalgia. These include muscular rheumatism or fibrositis and generally mean conditions that cause a lot of pain in muscles and soft tissues but don't damage to bones and joints.
      Fibromyalgia symptoms
      Pain in the muscles, tiredness and sleep disturbance are the main symptoms of fibromyalgia, but they vary from person to person and also over the course of the day. The pain may feel as though it affects your whole body, or it may be particularly bad in just a few areas. People with fibromyalgia often say that the tiredness (fatigue) is the worst aspect of the condition. Less frequent fibromyalgia symptoms include:
      • headache irritability, or feeling a bit down

    16. Fibromyalgia And Hypoglycemia Diet
    Provides information and recipes for the those patients who also have hypoglycemia.
    Diet can help fibromyalgia and hypoglycemia symptoms
    It has been estimated by Dr. Paul St. Amand that 40% all people with fibromyalgia, also suffer from hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). What this means is that 4 in 10 fibromyalgia sufferers need a fibromyalgia and hypoglycemia diet - else many of their symptoms will flare-up. An improper diet will increase insulin levels, force blood sugar down, and bring out fibromyalgia symptoms that includes fatigue, irritability, headaches, depression, carb cravings, blurry vision, poor memory, and anxiety. At worst, there will also be hypoglycemic symptoms such as fainting or a rapid heartbeat. A proper fibromyalgia and hypoglycemia diet will keep insulin levels from rising and keep blood sugar from lowering.
    So if you are one of the 4 out of 10 fibromyalgia sufferers that also has hypoglycemia, here is a diet that helps:
    Fibromyalgia and Hypoglycemia Diet
    Please note that this is not a weight reduction diet, it is a diet to help prevent fibromyalgia symptoms from flaring-up.

    PAUL J. MILLEA, M.D., M.S., and
    Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    A patient information handout on fibromyalgia, written by the authors of this article, is provided on page 1587. See editorial
    on page 1492.
    F ibromyalgia is a rheumatologic condition characterized by spontaneous, widespread soft tissue pain, sleep disturbance, fatigue and extensively distributed areas of tenderness known as tender points. Estimates of prevalence are 3.4 percent for women and 0.5 percent for men. Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread soft tissue pain, disturbed sleep, fatigue and diffuse tender points. Fibromyalgia can be perplexing to patients and physicians because of the lack of associated abnormalities on readily available diagnostic tests. Despite this, recent findings about the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of fibromyalgia have dispelled the belief that the disorder is psychosomatic. While no laboratory test can confirm fibromyalgia, most patients present with a history of widespread pain, physical findings and comorbid conditions. With experience, the disorder may be diagnosed with confidence on initial presentation or after a period of observation and minimal diagnostic testing. The family physician is ideally suited to treat fibromyalgia because its management calls for a longitudinal relationship, a willingness to try different therapeutic modalities and an understanding of the interrelationship of the biopsychosocial aspects of health.

      Fibromyalgia is a common condition characterized by long-term, body-wide pain and tender points in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, morning stiffness, sleep problems, headaches, numbness in hands and feet, depression, and anxiety. Fibromyalgia can develop on its own or along with other musculoskeletal conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Images: Fibromyalgia
      Alternative Names
      Fibromyositis; Fibrositis; Myofascial pain syndrome
      Causes, incidence, and risk factors
      The cause of this disorder is unknown. Physical or emotional trauma may play a role in development of the syndrome. Some evidence suggests that fibromyalgia patients have abnormal pain transmission responses. It has been suggested that sleep disturbances, which are common in fibromyalgia patients, may actually cause the condition. Another theory suggests that the disorder may be associated with changes in skeletal muscle metabolism, possibly caused by decreased blood flow, which could cause chronic fatigue and weakness. Others have suggested that an infectious microbe, such as a virus, triggers the illness. At this point, no such virus or microbe has been identified.
