Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic and widespread musculoskeletal pain syndrome, the hallmarks of which are tenderness, amplified pain, and severe fatigue. Though it is similar to arthritis, it does not cause the same inflammation. Fibromyalgia sufferers are often victims of stiff joints, headaches, and depression.
When treating fibromyalgia symptoms, mind-body medicine utilizes deep breathing, biofeedback, meditation, and other techniques to relax tight muscles and alter the perception of pain.
There are several clinic tests, exams, and guidelines used to determine whether a patient's symptoms are caused by fibromyalgia or another similar condition.
