fibromyalgia information

People who are eventually diagnosed with fibromyalgia may have spent years visiting doctors and undergoing inconclusive tests. The most effective test for diagnosing the condition involves pressing 18 points on the body and determining how much pain the pressure causes. In an average person, the pressure will be slight and the pain, if any, will be mild. In a person with fibromyalgia, however, the application of pressure to these points causes intense pain. Many people who suffer from fibromyalgia experience sleep problems, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), headaches, temporomandibular pain (pain in the jaw joint known as TMJ), and cognitive or memory impairments. Many fibromyalgia sufferers report being more sensitive to light, sound, touch, and smell than non-sufferers.
