Fibromyalgia is a body condition that can cause debilitating fatigue, muscle pain, tenderness, and mood changes. While it is unknown what causes this condition, some suggest the pain and other associated symptoms are secondary to the overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system.
After a physically or emotionally traumatic event, many people with fibromyalgia first experience symptoms other than pain such as muscle soreness and fatigue. Others begin to have pain following bouts of chronic stress or depression. Fibromyalgia tends to affect young women more than men, and you are more likely to experience it if you have a family member (parents or siblings) with the condition.
