The Prevention and Treatment of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a complex syndrome resulting in debilitating pain and fatigue. Its predominant symptom is pain in the fibrous tissues, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Science has recognized fibromyalgia as a rheumatic autoimmune disorder, whereby the following two criteria must be met for a diagnosis of fibromyalgia: widespread musculoskeletal pain in all four quadrants of the body for at least three months duration, in combination with tenderness at 11 or more of the 18 specific "tender point" sites. Other general, common symptoms include aching, disturbed sleep patterns, fatigue, morning stiffness, depression, recurrent headaches, tender lymph nodes, bowel or bladder disturbances, sensitivity to heat or cold, anxiety, gastrointestinal disturbances, dizziness, occasional racing heart beats, decreased coordination, and environmental allergies.
