Some pains do not come with explained causes. You just experience bouts of pain and tension surrounding your muscle structures. That is when we talk about a medical condition called ‘fibromyalgia’. Let us further understand the concept of fibromyalgia and the facts regarding it.


First, let us simplify the term ‘fibromyalgia’. It is the widespread pain and tenderness running all through your body structures. Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition experienced by an individual. Apart from the pain and tenderness, it accompanies sleep disturbances, anxiety, mood disorders and frequent episodes of fatigue.

Although not fully understood by scientists, with no known clear causative factors, people who suffer from fibromyalgia have hypersensitivity to pain stimuli compared to their other counterparts without fibromyalgia. This can be explained due to altered sensations and deviated perception of pain. 

The brain experiences difficulty in processing pain stimuli.

Individuals suffering from fibromyalgia have unbalanced levels of hormones and neurotransmitters like-

  • A neurotransmitter called- glutamate is present in greater amounts
  • Hormones like norepinephrine (noradrenaline) and serotonin are present in relatively low amounts
  • Hypersensitive to pain stimulus

Women are more likely to have fibromyalgia compared to their male counterparts because of altered hormonal levels and more episodes of anxiety.


This condition is more puzzling with no clear boundaries on what causes it, but if gets aggravated or triggered due to any underlying disorders it could start a pain cycle. Triggers could be physical or emotional factors or trauma or infection.

Though with no definitive documentation, it also could be due to genetic predisposition. It is a condition of an altered pain perception process.


There is a plethora of symptoms and discomfort that can be experienced due to fibromyalgia.

  • Unexplained pain
  • Sensitive to slight physical stimuli (pinching)
  • ‘Fibrofog’ referred to impaired ability to focus on tasks
  • Poor memory skills and concentration
  • Sleep disturbances and insomnia
  • Numbness or tingling in arms and legs (explained as pins and needles)
  • Digestive disorders like constipation, bloating
  • Early fatigue on mild to moderate physical exertion
  • Jaw pain (tempomandibular joint TMJ)
  • Episodes of migraine
  • Hypersensitive to pain


Fibromyalgia is a real medical condition and not just unexplained symptoms. Patient education becomes quite essential in fibromyalgia because of pain episodes and unclear causes. Patients often experience psychological dilemmas and physical pain. Therefore proper guidance and knowledge about fibromyalgia, its course and what can be the presenting symptoms, help the patient to well manage his treatment and approach a good quality of life. A multitude of approaches is followed to manage fibromyalgia in individuals.

  • Physiotherapy: Your physiotherapist will help you to improve the tone, flexibility and strength of the muscle and tissues. This will help to alleviate pain, maintain fatigue levels, increase endurance and promote fitness and manage pain cycles.
  • Managing sleep schedules: with existing difficulties in getting good quality sleep, ensure that you minimize your screen time and stay well hydrated. Avoid excessive caffeinated drinks that might otherwise further add up to insomnia.
  • Practice deep meditation and pranayams to manage stress and external triggers. Balance of both emotional and physical factors is essential to improve symptoms.
  • Water activities and indulging in yoga are also a bonus to managing symptoms of fibromyalgia. A sound mind and body are essential foundations for any step towards wellness.
  • In cases with advanced depression and mood disorders, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is required to treat the symptoms.


You might find a lot of exercises and maneuvers being flooded all over the internet. But not all treatment approaches are an answer to your problem. Every individual suffering from fibromyalgia may have a different causative factor and different biomechanical and muscular faults. So instead of ruining the prognosis, Let your physiotherapist do the work. So, a comprehensive evaluation and assessment would be the beginning. Your physiotherapist would learn about your comfort and the pain-provoking positions and then would tailor a program well-suited to fix your pain. The physiotherapy session would unfold in four phases which are usually Pain management, Stretching, and Chiropractic adjustments followed by strengthening of the required muscle groups. Other interventions can also be added as per the individual needs.
