Fibromyalgia Tender Points

Fibromyalgia is a neurosensory disorder which is described as chronic pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. Signs and symptoms include a generalised muscular ache in combination with tender points at the back of the head, shoulders, and front sides of the neck, outer elbows, chest, hips, and knees.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition literally meaning “muscle and connective tissue pain”. It’s more a syndrome which includes other symptoms such as fatigue or generalized tiredness, sleep disturbance and joint stiffness. Fibromyalgia is frequently associated with other psychiatric conditions.

Women in their mid-thirties to late-fifties are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men. Fibromyalgia is frequently comorbid with stress-related disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, irritable bowel syndrome and depression.

Within the science of Ayurvedic medicine, Fibromyalgia can be considered as a disease caused primarily by an imbalance of theVāta dosha), with the Pitta and Kapha playing a part. It’s part of a group called Vāta vyādhi, which consists of 80 diseases of a chronic and unpredictable nature, which are difficult to cure, involving primarily the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.

The pain associated with fibromyalgia often is described as a constant dull ache, the pain must occur on both sides of the body. The pain is associated with tenderness commonly located in the neck, shoulders, back, and hips called tender trigger points, widespread in deep muscle. The tenderness is worse in the mornings and has been described as flu-like, burning, throbbing, aching, or stabbing in nature.
