ABSTRACT

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a chronic condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, fatigue, and sleep disturbance. Historically, FMS was regarded by the medical community as a psychosomatic or psychiatric illness and, thus, patients often received little or no therapy. Although there is an important mind-body interaction, new developments have proven that FMS is, in fact, a legitimate syndrome with a valid physiological basis. Advances in research, education, and treatments have enabled physicians to provide better care for such patients. This article reviews the current research, defines the facts, dispels the fallacies, and explores the future remedies for FMS.
