What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune condition that seems to affect the way people with the condition interpret pain signals in the brain. There is no cure for the disorder, but there are treatments that may help people with fibromyalgia manage their symptoms.

What are the most common symptoms of fibromyalgia?

People who have fibromyalgia experience musculoskeletal pain throughout the body, as well as neurological symptoms including fatigue, mood issues, memory problems, and difficulties with sleep. 

Who is most likely to get fibromyalgia?

Women are more likely to get fibromyalgia than men, and people who have relatives with the condition are also more likely to be diagnosed. People who have lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis are more likely to develop fibromyalgia.

How long does it take, on average, to diagnose fibromyalgia?

In order to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you need to experience symptoms of the condition for at least three months. It's likely that your care provider will also run tests to rule out other health conditions that could be related to your symptoms.
