What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic widespread pain condition that affects over 10 million Americans. The primary fibromyalgia is “significant and widespread pain,” which occurs alongside other severe symptoms – namely fatigue, problems with thinking and memory (often called "fibro fog"), and waking unrefreshed. The pain and other symptoms must have been present for at least three months to receive a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.
