Fibromyalgia: Lengthy word, Painful condition.

You feel this deep muscle pain within your body, the slightest touch from something or someone feels as if you’re being targeted with stick pins. You find yourself stressed and worrying because you’re not sleeping well. You’ve tried to attribute the circumstances to a number of unfortunate events in your life but still came up with the wrong answer.

Until, you’ve finally had enough and decide it’s time to visit the doctor. After a series of tests you’re informed of a new word that’s going to be a part of your life for a while: Fibromyalgia.

Researchers in a recent article from the Mayo Clinic believe fibromyalgia amplifies pain sensors by affecting how your brain processes pain signals. 

According to the Mayo Clinic symptoms can occur after physical trauma, surgery and psychological stress to name a few. To add,women are more likely to develop this chronic and painful condition than men because women are more likely to suffer more physical trauma and surgery due to child birth alone. 

Now, that we’ve been introduced to this lengthy word but painful condition the question arises: How do we cure it?

Unfortunately, at this time there is no cure. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating right while following the doctor’s orders should do enough to allow comfort within your muscles and not within your sleep.
