Fibromyalgia is a chronic and complex medical condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and tenderness, often accompanied by a range of other symptoms such as fatigue, sleep disturbances, cognitive difficulties, and mood disturbances like depression and anxiety. The exact cause of fibromyalgia remains unclear, but it is thought to involve abnormalities in how the brain and nervous system process pain signals, as well as potential genetic and environmental factors. It is a condition that can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, as the chronic pain and other associated symptoms can be disabling. Managing fibromyalgia typically involves a multidisciplinary approach, including medications to alleviate pain and improve sleep, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and psychological support to help individuals cope with and mitigate the often-debilitating effects of the condition.
