Fibromyalgia Syndrome is a common chronic disease that causes muscle and soft tissue pain. The word itself actually comes from the Latin term for tissue – fibro, and the Greek terms for muscle – myoand pain – algia.This pain can occur anywhere in the body and it is often hard to determine where it hurts. Usually, the pain happens in the neck, shoulders, hips, arms or legs.
These common places and muscles are becoming really tender spots and they hurt with just a little pressure. All these tender spots are actually how most of the times fibromyalgia is determined.Most of the people who suffer from fibromyalgia syndrome have previously suffered from another disease, such as back pains, arthritis, headache or irritable bowel syndrome.
