Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain all over the body, sleep problems, fatigue, and often emotional and mental distress. People with fibromyalgia may be more sensitive to pain than people without fibromyalgia. The cause of fibromyalgia is not known, but it can be effectively treated and managed. In the U.S. around 4 million people are affected. Women are twice as likely to have fibromyalgia than men.
