Fibromyalgia creates a piercing pain in the muscles and joints of those it affects. The pain is chronic and could potentially never go away. Some have described it as feeling like a flu that never goes away.
In addition to aching pain, mental conditions are also associated with fibromyalgia. General anxiety and depression can sometimes seep into your daily routine, sapping you of any energy and causing extreme fatigue. Any productivity that you might have had is completely done away with. Instead, you are forced to deal with the daily pain and emotional stress you now have on your shoulders.
