Fibromyalgia pain is chronic and frequently involves multiple joints and muscles. Symptoms are often accompanied by persistent fatigue, headaches, depression, anxiety, etc. Sometimes, a person diagnosed with Fibromyalgia is also diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can include symptoms of unrefreshing sleep, severe headaches, muscle weakness, vertigo, low grade fever, etc. Depression and anxiety can be treated separately with counseling and medication.
There is no known cure for Fibromyalgia. Levels of pain and fatigue vary among affected individuals. It is difficult to establish the diagnosis until other possibilities can be ruled out.
Medications can help to reduce the pain and other symptoms. Exercise and physical therapy may also be advised to ease pain.
It is important that your treating doctors note your symptoms as a part of your treatment record. It is usually a good idea to prepare a list of your symptoms and remind your doctor of the complete list of symptoms which you are experiencing.
