Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome that is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, tenderness, trouble sleeping, and for many comes with the difficulty of doing normal activities. The American Medical Association identified fibromyalgia, as a physical illness and source of disability in 1987, however since there’s no test for it and doctors don’t know the definitive cause it can be a difficult workers’ compensation claim. Doctors surmise that fibromyalgia may be caused by injury or environment and focus treatment on easing pain rather than eradicating it because there is no cure. This means it is very important to have a good doctor by your side.
