Irritable Everything Syndrome – Fibro-My-What?

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic pain disorder characterized by widespread pain, fatigue and sleep disturbances. Recent research and the advancement of brain-imaging technology has revealed that FM is actually a disorder of the central nervous system, which causes abnormal pain processing and results in pain amplification. It is often associated with fatigue and poor sleep patterns.

Fibromyalgia syndrome (also called ‘FMS’ or ‘FM’) is a complex, chronic condition, which causes wide-spread pain and fatigue. For more symptoms, click HERE.

  1. Thank you for educating me about this, I have epilepsy and these is not much awareness in the States about that… I hope your blog continues to bring awareness all over!

    Chag Sameach to you too!!

  2. I have had this condition for at least 15 years and I find it hard to explain to people. There are times when I look quite well, this in turn makes me feel like a fraud, I have however just spent the last 3 days in bed with the worst bout I have had in a long long time. Today I am able to open my eyes without pain.
    I have almost managed to complete an art degree, 3 months to go, and I hope and pray that I can drag myself through the last part, it will be the hardest thing I have ever done but am nearly there. If I could be pain free `I would like to be a freelance artist. Thank you for your blog I shall continue to read.

  3. Didn’t you have a tri-fold flier with fibro facts on it? If so could you email it to me at lynnette.linkenhoker@ymail.com; I’m trying to get an awareness event/week going in my community. The more I talk about it, the more people I learn have this wonderful gift! lol Please let me know

  4. I stayed in bed most of day. Woke up and my back was killing me. I could hardly walk or bend over. I fellt bad all day long. Sometimes I push myself to go, to get things done. Hope everyone has a bless day.

  5. I can feel your “pain” as well as all else that you have listed. I have Severe Fibromyalgia and live a totally different life than what I had planned. Keep on educating.

  6. I’ve been diagnosed for 17 years now, and the best way I’ve found to explain my pain is to have someone think about how they feel when they have the flu. Usually this is enough to get a reaction, but I go on to tell them that with the flu, they ache all over, while I HURT all over. I follow up by saying this pain and exhaustion are the basics, with all sorts of fun additional bonuses. 🙂

  7. Still learning about this monster who lives in my body. Love your page. Thank you. Learning to cope, learning to survive, learning on what works and what don’t. HA HA No longer working so learning to deal.
