Course Description :
Fibromyalgia is a chronic and potentially debilitating disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Fibromyalgia is called a syndrome because it is a collection of health problems that occur together, but are not related to a specific cause. Fibromyalgia is similar to arthritis, but it’s not a true type of arthritis. However, after osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia is the second-most common condition seen by rheumatologists. Like arthritis, fibromyalgia is classified as a rheumatic condition because it affects joints and soft tissues and causes chronic pain. Since 1990, the American College of Rheumatology has recognized fibromyalgia as a chronic painful noninflammatory condition that affects muscles. Fibromyalgia affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3% to 6% of the world population. While it can affect people of all ages and any ethnic group, up to 90% of those with fibromyalgia are women.
