Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain throughout the body, primarily affecting muscles, bones and joints. Individuals experience a hypersensitivity to both painful and non-painful stimuli. Migraine disease and fibromyalgia are both disabling conditions frequently coexisting together and share a bidirectional relationship, especially in women. Studies have found that 20-36% of those with migraine disease also have fibromyalgia and 45-80% of those with fibromyalgia also have migraine.1
