Though the exact cause for this illness in unknown some of the researches make to believe that this may be caused due to poor sleep or inadequate sleep.

The process of pain in fibromyalgia people is very different. “Substance P” a chemical of cerebrospinal fluid plays an imp role in transmitting the pain impulses to brain. It is found that the level of this chemical in fibromyalgia people is three times more when compared with normal people.

Along with this pain, there are many other symptoms also seen in this syndrome like a hypochondriac. This fibromyalgia takes place in individuals of all the ages.

• Fatigue that may range from mild to severe.

• Brain mist or fibro fog, which may result in loss of memory, lack of ability to concentrate, and depression.

This problem interferes very seriously with your day to day activities.

• Muscle cramping and knots that look like rope (myofascial trigger points).

• Digestive disturbances like slowed digestion, diarrhea, recurrent abdominal pain and gas, nausea,

• Severe recurrent headache that is due to myofascial trigger points in the neck, shoulder and head muscles.

The major difference between tender and trigger points is, tender points by pressing feel pain only in that area, where as pressing a trigger point causes hurt and fires pain in other regions also.
