Fibromyalgia Syndrome - Information, Defination, causes of Chronic Fibromyalgia Disability

Fibromyalgia Diagnosis

Fibromyalgia Disease is a chronic musculoskeletal disorder characterized by persistent, widespread pain and abnormal pressure pain sensitivity (i.e., tenderness) at multiple anatomic sites, including the "tender points" identified by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Multi-Center Criteria Committee. Individuals with fibromyalgia also show abnormal pain sensitivity in response to thermal and electrocutaneous stimulation of the skin.

Additional clinical manifestations of fibromyalgia syndrome include fatigue, sleep disturbance, impairments in attention and other cognitive functions, stiffness of muscles and joints, subjective joint swelling, and joint laxity or hypermobility. Although fibromyalgia has been recognized for decades with descriptive terms such as nonarticular rheumatism, psychogenic rheumatism, and fibrositis, it was not until 1990 that reliable criteria for classifying patients with this disorder were developed and published by a Multicenter Committee of the ACR.
