Glossary term explanation

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread muscle and bone pain.  The pain is accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory problems, and mood issues. Fibromyalgia seems to amplify the brain’s processing of painful signals and sensations.

Whereas the emphasis in chronic fatigue syndrome is on the persistent fatigue, the emphasis in fibromyalgia is on the widespread pain.

Some studies have shown that CoQ10 supplementation has a potential therapeutic effect in fibromyalgia.
