Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a chronic condition causing pain, stiffness, and tenderness of the muscles, tendons, and joints. It is also characterized by restless sleep, tiredness, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and disturbances in bowel functions. The etiology of fibromyalgia remains unknown, but recent advances and discoveries have helped to unravel some of the mysteries of this disease. Research highlights some of the biochemical, metabolic, and immune regulatory abnormalities associated with fibromyalgia. Evidence-based guidelines suggest that fibromyalgia is typically managed with multidisciplinary therapies involving medication, cognitive behavioral therapy, education, and exercise.
