Fibromyalgia is the second most common condition affecting bones and muscles. The most common symptoms of fibromyalgia include widespread musculoskeletal pain, extreme levels of fatigue, problems with cognition, and very poor sleep quality.
The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown. However, scientists believe it involves a combination of genetic and environmental factors, with each playing a substantial role. It can be passed on through genes, but for some people first symptoms appear after some sort of trauma. It can affect anyone regardless of gender and age, but it does affect around 7 times as many women as men and it typically develops between the ages of 30 and 50. The symptoms appear to result from processes in the central nervous system causing headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.
And, unfortunately, there is no cure, but medicinal cannabis helped lots of people soothe pain and regain night rest. Cannabis helps reduce muscle stiffness, mood problems, anxiety, and headaches associated with fibromyalgia. A combination of medication, exercise and maintaining healthy habits with cannabis can ease symptoms drastically.
