Causes and Risk Factors of Fibromyalgia

Causes and Risk Factors of Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia has no known cause. This can be very frustrating because without a cause it difficult to come up with a cure or to try to prevent the disease. It is much easier for patients and physicians to manage diseases that they understand more fully. The research over the last 20 years has increasingly shown that it is a neurological problem and not a muscle problem as previously thought. In the recent past, it was thought to be a primarily soft tissue problem, such as issues with the muscles, and their coverings, and their attachments to bones. This better understanding has helped to change how we treat the disease.

Overview: What Is Fibromyalgia?

Overview: What Is Fibromyalgia?. Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder, a condition in which patients have widespread musculoskeletal pain and abnormal pain regulation in the nervous system. It is a condition of which the cause is unknown and there is currently no cure. Typically patients will have multiple painful areas on the body, usually in the muscles and tendons (the tight bands of tissue that connect muscle to bone), and commonly say they “hurt all over.” They also may have a variety of other accompanying symptoms or conditions. Discovered in the mid-19th century in Europe, fibromyalgia affects anywhere from 2 to 3 percent of the population with a higher incidence in women. It is the most common cause of musculoskeletal pain in women ages 20 to 55. The chances of getting the disease are higher from ages 50 to 60.
