In brief: Yes, quite intense
? is fibromyalgia (FM) very painful.
Chronic widespread pain evolves from a multitude of peripheral & central pain generators: anoxic trigger points, spastic soft tissues (muscles, tendons, myofascia), strained ligaments, injured ligaments, subluxing joints (sacroiliac & TMJ), functional scoliosis, bowel (IBS), bladder (IC), & a variety of neuopathies (sciatic, brachial plexus, presacral plexus).
