Do you often experience widespread body aches along with sleeping issues, fatigue, and cognitive troubles? The condition that brings about these symptoms together is called Fibromyalgia. The symptoms generally accumulate over a period of time due to various triggering factors such as surgery, infection, physical trauma, or stress, and are generally not attributed to any such single event.
