Fibromyalgia Relief in McKinney

person with ankle painFibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that affects your muscles, ligaments, and tendons, causing pain and tenderness, sometimes widespread throughout your body. Besides the physical problems, it can negatively affect your mental health and your social life.

What Is It?

Symptoms typically manifest in different ways and range in severity from case to case. Besides pain and tenderness in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, other commonly reported symptoms are fatigue, poor sleep, and cognitive issues; less common symptoms include depression, anxiety, migraines, headaches, and digestive and gastrointestinal issues. Stress can make your symptoms worse.

What Causes It?

Experts don’t know the main causes of fibromyalgia, but many in the research community agree that it is a central processing disorder. Patients most likely experience pain due to issues that arise in the central nervous system. Irregularities in that part of the body can affect your sensory processing. Genetics may also play a role in how likely you are to contract it.

An illness or injury that results in trauma to the body can speed up and amplify the progression of the condition. Since it can be difficult to diagnose accurately, fibromyalgia patients are often people who have tested negative for other illnesses since symptoms can overlap with many other conditions.
