Many people in the UK live with pain and fatigue everyday as they battle Fibromyalgia. The following documentary tells the inspiring stories of how some sufferers are taking back control of their lives.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues.
Scientists believe that the condition amplified painful sensations by affecting the way our brain and spinal cord process painful and non-painful signals.
Often triggered by a stressful event, including physical or emotional stress, between 2 and 3 million people in the UK suffer from this condition.
Main symptoms of fibromyalgia include widespread pain, extreme sensitivity, stiffness, fatigue, poor sleep quality, cognitive problems, headaches, and more. The condition is more common between people aged 25 to 55. It also appeared more in women than men.
