Every penny is to go to the Understanding lupus and Fibromyalgia this disease that’s very close to my heart.

Fibromyalgia is also called Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). It is a long-term (chronic) condition that can cause widespread pain and tenderness over much of the body. It’s quite common – up to 1 person in every 25 may be affected.

As well as widespread pain, people with fibromyalgia may also have:

  • Increased sensitivity to pain.
  • Fatigue (extreme tiredness).
  • Muscle stiffness.
  • Difficulty sleeping.
  • Problems with mental processes such as memory and concentration; also referred to as “Fibro-fog”.
  • Headaches.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

 

Quick Facts & Stats:
  • One of the main reasons it’s not clear how many people are affected is because fibromyalgia can be a difficult condition to diagnose.
  • There’s no specific test for the condition, and the symptoms can be similar to a number of other conditions
  • Fibromyalgia affects around seven times as many women as men.
  • The condition typically develops between the ages of 30 and 50, but can occur in people of any age, including children and the elderly.
  • Although it’s not clear exactly how many people are affected by fibromyalgia. Some estimates suggest nearly 1 in 20 people may be affected by fibromyalgia to some degree; making it relatively common.
