In brief: See below

Fibromyalgia is a poorly understood syndrome.
It is not a disease in the true sense of the work but is thought to be related to oversensitivty of the nervous system with a lowered threshold for pain. There a many approaches includeing aerobic exercise, certain medications, behavioral medicine techniques which can be helpful. A certain number of people will have spontaneous improvement of symptoms.

In brief: Common.

No cure, but most people can achieve good quality of life.
Moderate exercise, adequate rest ( and good sleep), and reduction of stress are veru important. Drugs used for it are cymbalta, savella, (milnacipran) and lyrica. Some people still beieive amitryptiline and Flexeril can help. Many other non-medication modalities can help.

In brief: There is no cure

Fibromyalgia is a generalized systemic condition that is characterized by widespread aching or pain throughout the body.
To be included in the diagnosis of FM, this pain should be located in at least three out of four quadrants of the body. If diagnosed, use east-west integrative medicine for management, not a cure.

In brief: Fibromyalgia

It's more a matter of management than cure, unfortunately.
Pain management, preferably with as few pills as possible is of utmost importance. Here is the website of the American Academy of Pain Management: http://www.aapainmanage.org/
