About

Fibromyalgia is the condition of widespread musculoskeletal pain.

Fibromyalgia affects around 7 times as many women as men. [1]

Researchers believe that Fibromyalgia is the result of abnormal levels of certain chemicals in the brain and changes in the way the central nervous system processes pain messages carried around the body. In most cases, the symptoms are triggered by a traumatic or stressful life event.

Some common causes:
- an injury or infection
- giving birth
- having an operation
- the breakdown of a relationship
- the death of a loved one

People affected- typically age 30-50, but is possible at any age.
