Everything You Need to Know About Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a long-term or chronic disorder.
It’s associated with widespread pain in the muscles and bones, areas of tenderness, and general fatigue.
Symptoms like these are considered subjective, meaning they can’t be determined or measured by tests.
Because its symptoms are subjective and there isn’t a clear known cause, fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed as another disease.
