|However Fibromyalgia is not a muscle problem! Fibromyalgia is a Neurological and Metabolic/Immune problem that causes your brain’s pain system to be super sensitized.
The pain usually affects the entire body, although it may start in one area, such as the neck and shoulders, and spread to other areas over a period of time. The neurological mis-firing found in fibromyalgia can eventually cause severe muscular pain and fatigue. The name, Fibromyalgia, means pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the ligaments and tendons) but it is truly an issue with your brain and immune system. That is why most tests your medical doctor runs come up negative. Because there typically is nothing wrong with your muscles.
