Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes pain and stiffness throughout the tissues that support and move the bones and joints. Pain and localized tender points occur in the muscles, particularly those that support the neck, spine, shoulders and hips. The disorder includes widespread pain, fatigue and sleep disturbances.

Sandee provided you with some good information. Fibro can be a very painful and debilitating condition. It has not always been a very well understood or recognized condition. Luckily it is more accepted and better understood of late.

We also have a Fibro Forum on MedHelp. You may want to visit there and view some of the posts or repeat your question.
