Fibromyalgia. Hard to nail down, hard to treat. For years, the medical community had trouble even recognizing fibromyalgia as a disease. With such symptoms as chronic pain, fatique and anxiety and depression, even diagnosing a patient with the ailment was difficult. With no quantifiable and obvious signs, the medical community and others resisted the belief that there were those that actually suffered from the disease on a chronic basis. Fortunately, after years of study, Fibromyalgia is now seen as a debilitating disease that can disrupt the lives of those who suffer from its widespread symptoms which, according to the Fibromyalgia Network include:
- Widespread muscle and joint pain
- Brain Fog
- Muscle cramping and weakness
- Digestive problems
- Balance issues
