Dyspareunia refers to the discomfort or pain that one feel during sexual intercourse. It can lead to extreme pain making sex impossible. Just like incontinence, most patients avoid discussing it with their health care providers. However, dyspareunia can make fibromyalgia management even more difficult. Moreover, this condition can sometimes cause a strain in relationships. Thus, if you suffer from dyspareunia, it is important that you talk to your doctor about it.
Chronic dysuria is also another common complaint in fibromyalgia patients. Both men and women suffer from this condition. Unfortunately, the causes are usually unknown. Dysuria happens when one feels a burning sensation when urinating. Additionally, the condition can also be accompanied by pain in the abdomen.
