Fibromyalgia is a chronic, widespread form of myofascial pain. Fibromyalgia symptoms often begin after a physical or emotional trauma, but in many cases there appears to be no triggering event. The condition is associated with trigger points and sleep disturbance.

Treatment options for myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia include medications, physical therapy, and trigger point injections. Click on this link for more information about trigger point injections, Trigger Point Injections.
