Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by diffuse, widespread body pain. While virtually anyone can develop fibromyalgia, it is much more common in women. The pain is associated with fatigue, problems sleeping, and memory issues. In some cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no particular trauma. It is a disease that is also associated with other conditions, such as headaches, anxiety, depression, and irritable bowel syndrome.
