10 Most Common Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a condition that affects the bones and muscles, causing joint pain and general stiffness throughout the body. The condition can cause a wide range of symptoms that may seem unrelated to a musculoskeletal condition, but are actually a result of the knock-on effect that these problems can have for the body.

Treatment is available from your doctor which help reduce the pain caused by fibromyalgia, although doctors will tell you that it is unlikely that the symptoms will completely disappear. Currently we are only able to manage pain and symptoms, making it a more comfortable condition to live with.


These are the 10 most common symptoms of fibromyalgia which might help in your decision to see a doctor.

1. Pain across the body

Fibromyalgia causes pain throughout the body, though it will likely be focused around joint areas, meaning you should expect pain in the wrists, elbows, knees, hip and shoulder. The pain is a stabbing feeling as opposed to a general ache, though some people have reported a dull, aching pain as well as stabbing. The pain is continuous and, without treatment, can seriously impact your life.

The amazing thing, however, is that the pain seems to have no cause – at least, there is no cause that we can find. We believe it could be a result of changing weather conditions, or a result of physical or emotional stress on the body.
