Fibromyalgia

“Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition affecting 2-6% of the US population, and is characterized by widespread pain, tenderness, and various associated features, including fatigue, morning stiffness, unrefreshing sleep, and cognitive symptoms and physical and psychological impairment. Fibromyalgia has a major impact on quality of life (QOL). It has been shown that women with fibromyalgia have QOL below the general population and comparably lower than patients with other chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, permanent ostomy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, insulin-dependent diabetes, advanced cancer, or congestive heart failure. In the United States, about one-third of the population is classified as obese, and the obesity epidemic is associated with the costs and health burden. Associations between body mass index (BMI) and fibromyalgia symptoms, including increased pain sensitivity, and poorer physical function, sleep and QOL has been reported”.
