What Exactly Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome with intensified sensation of pain due to abnormal behaviour of the brain and nervous system and how pain is processed. Fibromyalgia symptoms tend to manifest themselves after surgery, infection, or a traumatic event—either psychological or physical. Oftentimes, there seems to be no significant incident, but rather a steady accumulation of symptoms over time. Fibromyalgia affects 2 to 6 percent of people, while women are 10 times more likely to have the syndrome.
