Fibromyalgia means pain in the fibrous tissues of the body, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Primary fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a form of fibromyalgia where pain occurs in muscles, tendons, and ligaments throughout the body. The cause is not known. It is most common in young and middle-aged women, but can also be found in men, children, adolescents, and older adults.
Secondary fibromyalgia is a form of fibromyalgia that is caused by another disorder. It may also be associated with overuse or trauma to the muscles, such as that experienced following a motor vehicle accident. In secondary fibromyalgia, the pain is often localized (it occurs in a specific area of the body). Men are more likely to have secondary fibromyalgia than primary fibromyalgia.
Concomitant fibromyalgia is a form of fibromyalgia that co-exists with another condition that causes muscle pain, such as arthritis, or other diseases of the connective tissue.
The correlation between fibromyalgia and EMFs is only beginning to be recognized.
