Fibromyalgia Syndrome by nfra.net

Fibromyalgia (fi-bro-my-AL-ja) syndrome (FMS) produces chronic body-wide pain, which migrates and can be felt from head to toe. Other symptoms include persistent fatigue, headaches, cognitive or memory impairment, morning stiffness and non-restorative sleep. The pain can migrate from day to day. Recent scientific research studies have shown central nervous system involvement in FMS. The National Fibromyalgia Research Association is THE source for whatís new in fibromyalgia research and education. On this site you will find fibromyalgia diagnostic criteria and an Informational Guide. Also available is the newest material regarding the connection between the central nervous system (Chiari & cervical spinal cord stenosis) and FM/CFIDS. Look at low blood pressure problems in FMS and CFIDS.

    • Over 6 million Americans, 90% of them women in the prime of their life, suffer from FMS and sometimes struggle for years before being correctly diagnosed.
    • Symptoms usually appear between 20-55 years of age, but children are also diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome.
    • Pain and severe fatigue may keep FMS sufferers from their chosen profession and unable to perform common daily tasks.
    • Fibromyalgia pain continues throughout a personís lifetime.
