Having muscle pain and fatigue can be very common after you have finished a day full of activities with great physical demands.
However, when these symptoms occur more regularly and begin to affect quality of life, the more likely it is that the person is suffering from fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is an unknown cause syndrome whose main symptom is severe localized pain in the muscle, tendon, joint and visceral areas. These areas are known as “hypersensitive” points and suffice that they undergo a slight pressure so that the pain is intense.
Although patients with this disease may have symptoms similar to those who have joint problems, the major difference is that there is no inflammation, so it is not a form of arthritis.
However, what should be considered is that it is a form of rheumatism of the soft parts.
What are the causes of fibromyalgia?
The cause of this health problem has not been defined yet, several hypotheses suggest that it may be due to abnormalities in the central nervous system.
The neurological disorders of the sensitized pathways lead, as a consequence, an increase of the painful signs, giving rise to what is known as hyperalgesic (increased pain).
