Pain in the Back and Other Parts of The Body from Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia does not only cause (back pain), it is a medical condition that causes pain throughout the body, according to an article on SpineNation.com.

In addition, the article states that the symptoms of fibromyalgia can begin suddenly. The article offers valuable information about the medical condition that causes back pain and other types of body pain.

Back Pain and Other Types Due to Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia symptoms that are sudden occur after surgery, infection, physical injury or stress. In some cases, however, fibromyalgia symptoms gradually become worse even though there is an absence of  obvious trigger factors.

The first symptom that people with fibromyalgia notices is (back pain). People can experience back pain even years before they are diagnosed with the medical condition. One study shows that one-quarter of women who suffered from lower back pain were discovered later to have fibromyalgia. There is still no explanation as to why back pain is usually the first symptom of fibromyalgia.

Risk Factors for Back Pain

One study discovered several factors that can make people experience back pain or neck pain that results in chronic back pain.

The list of risk factors includes pain that ranges from moderate to severe. Chronic pain that runs in the family and experiencing severe pain that interferes with daily activities are also two risk factors. Other risk factors are migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, and/or restless legs. Using more strategies for pain management is also listed as a risk factor.
