Tip of the Day

There is simply no single theory that explains who is at risk for fibromyalgia. Whatever the cause, the unending pain and interrupted sleep are guaranteed to increase the fatigue and depression you feel, leading to increased anxiety, reduced activity, and greater pain. Disordered sleep can reduce your energy levels, and if continued over time, can lead to a decrease in repair to damaged tissues. Once your doctor makes a proper diagnosis, effective treatment can be started to manage the symptoms before you lose quality of life.
