Fibromyalgia — a disorder that causes pain and tenderness throughout the body — affects over 5 million adults in the United States — mainly women, who make up 75-90 percent of those diagnosed with the condition. Generally, fibromyalgia strikes in middle age, but children can also be at risk. It occurs around the world and is found in all races and ethnicities.

Scientists are unsure as to the cause of the condition, but some suspect it occurs when the body’s central nervous system doesn’t process pain properly. Fibromyalgia usually begins after one has suffered from a physical, psychological or emotional trauma — like illness, infection, injury or upsetting life event. The disorder is also associated with irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, neurological issues, chemical sensitivities, restless legs syndrome, brain fog, fatigue, insomnia, mood swings, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few.

Needless to say, fibromyalgia can severely disrupt daily life, work and relationships, especially since anxiety and depression are close companions of the disorder. To make matters worse, medical science hasn’t been able to offer much in the way of effective treatment. Until now.
