Fibromyalgia is also referred to as soft-tissue rheumatism. Pain is spread diffusely throughout the entire body and triggered by pressure on muscle insertions.
Fibromyalgia is a form of sensory processing disorder and often involves a psychological component.
Reduced sleep quality also has an influence on our sensory processing. Ideally, treatment is interdisciplinary and involves rheumatologists, physiotherapists and, where necessary, psychotherapists. Therapy with medication can also have a positive effect.
