In brief: Widespread pain
Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread pain with defined localized tender areas both above and below the waist and on both the left and right sides of the body.
Tenderness is often accompanied by tingling or numbness in the limbs. Other symptoms include fatigue, impaired sleep, sometimes depression, irritable bowel, jaw pain, and other symptoms. A physician can confirm the diagnosis.
