Juvenile Fibromyalgia Research Mississippi

Juvenile Fibromyalgia is well known as a musculoskeletal disease or neuropsychiatric condition affecting children and adolescents. Symptons of Fibromyalgia are chronic widespread pains and allodynia, a heightened and painful response to pressure. However, symptoms can also include debilitating fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and joint stiffness, difficulty with swallowing, bowel and bladder abnormalities, tingling and numbness, and cognitive dysfunction. Fibromyalgia is often linked with psychiatric conditions such as depression and anxiety and stress-related disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorders. Fibromyalgia roughly affects 2–4% of the adult population, with a female to male incidence ratio of approximately 9:1. Though there is no current cure for fibromyalgia, research in clinical trials have shown to effectively reduce symptoms of Fibromyalgia with medications, behavioral interventions, patient education, and exercise. Fibromyalgia has been recognized as a diagnosable disorder by the US National Institutes of Health and the American College of Rheumatology.
