Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and multiple tender points.
"Tender points" refers to tenderness that occurs in precise, localized areas, particularly in the neck, spine, shoulders, and hips.
People with this syndrome may also experience sleep disturbances, morning stiffness, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, and other symptoms.
