After arthritis, fibromyalgia is the most common condition affecting the musculoskeletal system. Between three and six million Americans (an average of one out of every five) experience widespread, chronic aches and localized tenderness.1,2

Causes and Risk Factors of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by an increased pain sensitivity (“central sensitization”). There is no known cause, but some research suggests that nerve stimuli changes the brain, resulting in an increase in the amount of neurotransmitters that conduct pain signals and/or pain receptors developing a “memory”.

There are a number of risk factors that may increase the likelihood that someone will be diagnosed with fibromyalgia:

Fibromyalgia Sufferer
  • Sex—women are significantly more likely to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia than men. Approximately 80-90% of all sufferers are women.1
  • Genetics—someone with a relative with fibromyalgia is also more likely to have the condition.
  • PTSD—emotional stress can trigger onset.
  • Rheumatic condition—at least one quarter of those diagnosed also have rheumatoid arthritis, lupus or another rheumatic disease.1

For some people, fibromyalgia is triggered by physical trauma, such as surgery or an infection, or emotional trauma. For others, onset is more gradual.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Fibromyalgia may feel like a dull ache, numbness or tingling in large areas on both sides of the body. In addition to generalized pain, fibromyalgia suffers may also experience:

  • Joint stiffness
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Memory or mood disturbances
  • Headaches
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

50% of fibromyalgia sufferers also experience increased sensitivity to other sensory stimuli like odors, sound and light.1
