Fibromyalgia Attorney – Fibromyalgia Lawyers
The American College of Rheumatology’s 1990 Criteria defines fibromyalgia as widespread muscular pain, fatigue and tenderness. Many people with fibromyalgia also experience additional symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, irritable bowl syndrome, irritable bladder, cognitive and memory problems (often called ‘fibro fog’), temporomandibular joint disorder, pelvic pain, restless leg syndrome, sensitivity to noise and temperature, and anxiety and depression. These symptoms can vary in intensity and, like the pain of fibromyalgia, wax and wane over time. In addition to having widespread pain for at least three months, diagnosis is made when there is pain in at least 11 of 18 tender point sites on the body upon digital palpation. This pain can be so debilitating it prevents a person from engaging in activities of daily living and working in even a sedentary occupation.

Fibromyalgia disability is defined as chronic pain, stiffness, and tenderness of the muscles, tendons, and joints.
According to The American College of Rheumatology’s web site, fibromyalgia is defined by chronic widespread muscular pain and symptoms such as fatigue, sleep disturbances, stiffness, cognitive and memory problems, and symptoms of depression and anxiety. More localized pain conditions often occur in patients with fibromyalgia, including migraine or tension headaches, temporomandibular disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disorder, irritable bladder, and pelvic pain syndromes. The symptoms of fibromyalgia and associated conditions can vary in intensity and wax and wane over time. Stress often worsens these symptoms.
