History of Fibromaylgia

History of Fibromaylgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic painful condition characterized by widespread pain in the body. Though it affects almost 2-3 % of the population, awareness in general is lacking.
It is a grossly under-diagnosed, under-treated condition.

Though described since the 1800s, definite classification criteria were established in 1990 & updated by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) in 2010.
