Symptoms Of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a relatively new syndrome in the field of rheumatology. This condition is characterized by the presence of generalized pain in the muscular system, which is not caused by inflammation of the joints. This is a very common disease that affects approximately 3%-4% of the entire population and is significantly more common in women compared to men.

In recent years, there has been significant progress in understanding the mechanism behind fibromyalgia syndrome and in developing effective drugs to treat this condition. At the same time, the treatment of fibromyalgia cannot be based only on drugs and additional treatment components, such as physical activity and complementary therapy, are of central importance

According to Cleveland Clinic, extensive muscle pain and joint pain along with fatigue and poor sleep are the defining symptoms of fibromyalgia. Other symptoms of this condition include;

. Anxiety or depression.
