Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes pain all over the body, sleep problems, fatigue, and often emotional and mental distress. Fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals, meaning people with fibromyalgia are more sensitive to pain than those without the disorder. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fibromyalgia affects around 4 million U.S. adults, or about 2 percent of the adult population.
On this Mayo Clinic Radio program episode, Dr. Christopher Aakre, an internal medicine specialist in Mayo Clinic's Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Clinic, discusses diagnosing and managing fibromyalgia.
