It's estimated that fibromyalgia affects approximately 10 million people in the United States. Fibromyalgia is classically characterized by chronic pain, particularly muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, brain fog or cognitive impairment, depression and painful tender points throughout the body.
Fibromyalgia and low grade fevers often run hand in hand. Fibromyalgia causes debilitating pain in the muscles, the extremities and extreme fatigue. There are many possible reasons that the fevers may occur alongside fibromyalgia although doctors aren't exactly sure of the cause of said fevers.
Fibromyalgia patients often show Symptoms of Costochondritis which include: Pain in the ribcage and chest which worsens with exercise or any activity. Pain when inhaling deeply, sneezing and coughing due to stretching of the inflamed cartilage. Pain radiates from the chest to the arms and shoulders and, in this manner, mimics a heart attack. Pain is often accompanied by inflammation or redness, a condition known as Tietze's Syndrome.
