Fibromyalgia: Consequences

Here are the consequences for many who suffer with fibromyalgia:

  • Reduced sense of health and well-being
  • Constant concerns related to the cause of the symptoms
  • Sense of loss of control
  • Reduced activity and exercise
  • Difficulty with the activities of daily living
  • Problems with interpersonal relationships with family, friends, and coworkers
  • Disability with missed workdays

Fibromyalgia causes symptoms and discomfort ranging from mild and inconvenient to severe, resulting in incapacitation and disability. Current evidence shows that many patients with fibromyalgia lead restricted lives in multiple areas, including reduced physical activity, missed social opportunities, and lack of enjoyment of life. Many do not obtain much relief from current health care practices and medications.
