What is Fibromyalgia
As many may not know what this disease consists of, let’s take the opportunity to briefly explain what it is and its symptoms.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that affects the skeletal muscle in a generalized manner, framed within rheumatic diseases, and which, in addition, is accompanied by problems such as:
Imbalance in mood, may cause anxiety or even depression.
Loss of memory.
Irritable bowel syndrome
Many of these problems are in turn symptoms of this disease, along with others such as there are specific points in the body that touch feel a sharp pain or overwhelming fatigue that occurs on waking.
How well María José Campanario explained for an interview, fibromyalgia is a very hard disease:
“Bottoms out. The medication was no longer effective and I could not sleep, and without sleep you lose joy, you lose strength, you lose the desire to eat … you lose everything ”
