Fibromyalgia

I've had symptoms for many years and multiple lab tests and imaging sessions done. Today, like my mother before me, I officially acknowledge fibromyalgia as part of my family of chronic health issues.
"Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals."

It is mostly a relief to have a starting point for answers!
