Fibromyalgia is a fairly common medical condition, which is characterized with all over tenderness and pain. Fibromyalgia usually is characterized with body aches, chronic muscle pain or aches, fatigue, tender areas that affect the muscles and joints, numbness and tingling and fatigue. Other symptoms can include palpitations, irritable bowel syndrome, sleeping problems, migraines and problems with memory. Fibromyalgia is more common in women, but affects both men and women. Fibromyalgia can range anywhere from being mild, to being severe. Mild cases of fibromyalgia can often be relieved with lifestyle and medical changes, but many cases of fibromyalgia can not be cured.

Although homeopathy can not cure fibromyalgia, it can help to improve the condition and the symptoms.
