Common Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Common Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Debra Murray


The types of pain that is associated with this disease can vary. Sometimes, it is felt deep in the bones and muscles, which makes movement and exercise very difficult. Other times, the pain is more topical and localized. A person may also feel like their skin hurts if it is touched too roughly. Over the counter topical pain relief creams can help with these symptoms though, and they aren't addicting like many pain relief pills.



One of the most difficult aspects of fibromyalgia is the way that it causes crushing fatigue in those who suffer from it. Performing the most simple tasks makes someone weak and exhausted. And since so few people understand much about this disease, this can lead to a lot of misunderstandings. Family members, friends, and employers often do not realize why the person is acting different. Because of this, it is common for people with fibromyalgia to feel isolated, anxious, and depressed.


Muscle Spasms

 Even the slightest movements can cause the muscles to start spasming. And since they are already sore, this makes the pain worse. This symptom can be relieved by applying cream for pain relief before doing some gentle stretches each day. This will help to keep the muscles relaxed and less tender.


Sensory Impairments

One of the most unusual symptoms of fibromyalgia is the way that it affects the senses. It is common for people with the disease to have difficulty enduring strong odors, bright lights, or loud sounds. They can all trigger severe headaches and tension in the muscles that lasts for hours. 



If you or someone you know has any of the symptoms of fibromyalgia, don't give up hope. Continue to search for a doctor that will take your symptoms seriously.
