Fibromyalgia Symptoms: 8 Signs of the Chronic Pain Disorder You Shouldn't Ignore

Fibromyalgia is a painful condition that can sometimes be harder to diagnose than other diseases. Symptoms of fibromyalgia can overlap and there is not a test that doctors can order to have patients tested. There is no cure for fibromyalgia, but there are treatment options patients who are diagnosed can try to decrease their symptoms. 

It's important to talk to your doctor about any symptoms you may be experiencing to rule out illnesses and receive a proper diagnosis. Having an illness correctly diagnosed as soon as possible is key in receiving adequate treatment and to keep the illness from progressing as much as you can. Eight symptoms you should keep an eye on and talk to your doctor about in case they are caused from fibromyalgia are:

  1. tender, painful joints
  2. body-wide pain
  3. fatigue
  4. trouble sleeping
  5. trouble remembering (experiencing brain fog)
  6. numbness and tingling in hands, arms, feet and legs
  7. morning stiffness
  8. headaches

Don't ignore your symptoms.
