What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia, commonly known as FM, is characterized by long-term, widespread chronic pain, musculoskeletal pain, chronic fatigue, depression and tenderness.

Individuals with fibromyalgia typically experience the following symptoms:

  • Chronic pain
  • Diffuse muscle tenderness
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Problems with thinking and memory (sometimes called “brain fog”)

The severity is unique for each individual and varies based on a number of factors such as time of day, weather, physical activities, and stress.

Until now, fibromyalgia had long been thought to be a rheumatologic or neurologic syndrome (collection of symptoms) that could only be determined by ruling out other medical conditions, making clinical diagnosis challenging and coverage for fibromyalgia treatment inconsistent.
