Fibromyalgia, a recognized, diagnosable disorder, affects up to 3% of the population, with nearly 85% of that number being female.
Many mistakenly place fibromyalgia in the same category as arthritis, but this isn’t entirely accurate. Fibromyalgia has been known to cause not only pain in the joints, but sore muscles, concentration issues as well as fatigue. This disorder can make it difficult to perform even the simplest of daily tasks such as carrying groceries, exercising or even balancing a checkbook.
