Comorbid Conditions in Fibromyalgia


Pain Conditions

Those who have FMS and CFS are also known to suffer from several other chronic pain conditions that would require proper diagnosis for patients to receive proper treatments. If the other pain sources can be successfully treated, other symptoms of FMS and CFS may be relieved as well.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS), which is also known as chronic myofascial pain, is often confused with fibromyalgia (FMS), even though these two conditions are totally different from each other.

If you have MPS, the connective tissues and muscles that make up the fascia will be the trigger points of pain. Trigger points are usually small and hard knots that are shaped like peas that you may be able to feel them on your skin. Sometimes, the knot is painful especially when pressed and come sometimes trigger pain in some other parts of the body as well.
