Pain is a key symptom of fibromyalgia and is often a predominant feature in chronic fatigue syndrome and myalgic encephalomyelitis as well. The pain may manifest as an all-over, flu-like aching or as more localized throbbing, burning, stabbing or shooting sensations. It can range in intensity from mild to profound and tends to migrate, affecting different parts of the body at different times.
Treating pain is an ongoing challenge for both patients and their doctors. Treatment options range from over-the-counter and prescription medications to various types of exercise, supplements and numerous alternative and complementary therapies.
