Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain. According to the Arthritis Society, fibromyalgia is an impairment of pain processing mechanism in the central nervous system. Fibromyalgia typically affects more women than men and can occur without any precipitating event or cause. The onset of fibromyalgia can also occur after illness, infection, surgery or psychological stress/trauma.
