Fibromyalgia is a disease characterized by muscle and bones pain. It is believed that this disorder amplifies painful sensations because it affects the way your brain processes painful signals. In general terms, fibromyalgia begins after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or stress. Furthermore, symptoms accumulate over time and women are more likely to develop this disease.

Even though there is no cure, there are medications to help control its symptoms, and exercise or relaxation can help reducing them too. It is normal to have a constant dull and widespread pain on both sides of your body and above and below your waist. People who suffer from fibromyalgia are also prone to develop fatigue and disrupted sleep due to the pain. Sometimes, there are even cases in which cognitive difficulties, such as inability to pay attention or concentrate, are present. From E&S Doctors, we recommend to visit your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.


La fibromialgia es una enfermedad que se caracteriza por un dolor de huesos y músculos generalizado. Se cree que este trastorno amplifica las sensaciones de dolor porque afecta la forma en que el cerebro procesa las señales de ese dolor. Por lo general, la fibromialgia aparece tras un traumatismo físico, cirugia, infección o estrés significativo. Además, los síntomas se acumulan poco a poco con el tiempo y las mujeres son más propensas a tenerla.

Aunque no existe una cura, hay medicamentos para controlar los síntomas y, tanto el ejercicio como la relajación, pueden ayudar a reducirlos. Lo más normal es que se tenga un dolor generalizado, leve y molesto, que es constante por encima y debajo de la cintura y a ambos lados del cuerpo. Las personas que la padecen también suelen presentar fatiga e interrupciones del sueño, debidas al dolor. A veces, incluso se pueden dar casos con dificultades cognitivas como la falta de atención y concentración. Desde E&S Doctors, recomendamos acudir al médico si presenta alguno de estos síntomas.
