Fibromyalgia

You hurt all over, and frequently feel exhausted. Even after numerous tests, your doctor can't find anything specifically wrong with you. If this sounds like you, you may have fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread muscle and joint pain, and is often accompanied by fatigue. Fibromyalgia is also commonly associated with other health problems such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, depression and headaches.
