Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.

It’s believed that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way the human brain processes pain signals.

According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. suffer from this condition.

75 to 90 percent of the people who have fibromyalgia are women and the disorder is often seen in families, among siblings, or mothers and their children.
