The human body is a complex mass of cells tissues and bones with the brain directing working and interrelations among them all. On a good day it can work so perfectly that one might be tempted to think that nothing could ever be wrong with it.
This is why it is good that as much as it’s in your ability, you try to keep your body healthy.
There are however certain health conditions that can occur irrespective of the attention one pays to the body. One such condition is Fibromyalgia.
This is one body condition that has proven to be hard to understand even to medical personnel. This is because of its varied symptoms which may sometimes look like symptoms of some other health conditions.
Additionally, the fact that there are no real tests that can be done to confirm its diagnosis further compounds the issue. This has sometimes led to a wrong diagnosis of patients with the condition.
Basically, fibromyalgia is a health condition that generally causes body pains and great mental stress. It is explained in great detail here.
Some of its symptoms include:
Fatigue: Constant weakness or tiredness no matter how long an individual rest could be a symptom.
