May is the month we all come together to educate and raise awareness about Fibromyalgia with our friends and family, at work, and in our neighbourhoods. Take part to share the facts, and make a difference for all those impacted by Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterised by widespread pain, usually in addition to sleep, mood, and fatigue disorders. The majority of these patients will also describe having tension headaches, IBS, anxiety, and depression. The research agrees that Fibromyalgia amplifies the sensation of pain by how your brain processes pain signals.
Women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men, as well. Even with this information, the “why” someone would begin to have symptoms is still under debate. Most would agree a combination of genetic factors, traumas, along with infections are the main determinants to triggering this condition.
There is no definitive “cure” for Fibromyalgia, however, there are many treatment options, and usually, a combination of approaches tends to be the most effective.
Fibromyalgia Awareness Day is May 12th.
