Fibromyalgia is difficult to live with and endure. You are in horrible pain, mostly all day, every day. You can't sleep because you are uncomfortable and toss and turn a million times and you never reach restorative sleep (or stages 3 and 4 REM sleep), so your muscles do not heal nor repair themselves. Fibromyalgia causes not only pain and sore muscles, but also stiffness, fatigue, sensitivities to sound, light and weather, migraines, gastrointestinal issues, numbness and tingling sensations, Restless Leg Syndrome and often Fibromyalgia patients start developing other conditions on top of the Fibro. Fibromyalgia affects all aspects of life. Work is difficult, if your body will allow you to do it at all, travel can be a nightmare and relationships are hard to maintain because you can't keep up with them and you don't function the way they do.
Do you or someone you know have Fibromyalgia?
