Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and tenderness in the muscles and joints. It is estimated to affect up to 5% of the population and is more common in women than men.
There is no cure for fibromyalgia, but treatments can help manage symptoms. These may include medications, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes such as exercise, stress management, and sleep hygiene.
Support groups and counseling can also help individuals cope with the challenges of living with fibromyalgia.
