What are the core symptoms of Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia shows up differently in everyone; for some, it may feel like discomfort in their neck, back, knees or other joints. They may also experience digestive issues, brainfog, constipation or diarrhea. For others, it may feel like nausea, headaches, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and sleep issues. Most commonly Fibromyalgia causes people to retreat from their lives and unfortunately, they end up missing out on time with friends, family events, and connecting with others which unfortunately perpetuates the spiral down into further issues like anxiety or depression as they become more disconnected.

What causes Fibromyalgia?

Experts have identified causes in many areas from biology (head injuries, hormonal imbalances, blood sugar issues, medication side effects), psychological issues (emotional trauma) and social issues (stress at work or home relationships).
However, the common core of Fibromyalgia lies in the neurological system. Those that struggle with fibromyalgia commonly have sympathetic dominance, where their fight-or flight nervous system has seized control and is the major lens through how they function in the world. They also will commonly have problems with function in the frontal lobes of the brain, whose primary job is to quiet the lower emotional centers of the brain, leading to greater dysregulation, feelings of unease in common situations, and poor emotional regulation because their brain is constantly perceiving a threat.
