Fibromyalgia syndrome is a common chronic pain condition that affects at least 2% of the adult population. Chronic widespread pain is the defining feature of FM, but patients may also exhibit a range of other symptoms, including sleep disturbance, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches and mood disorders. While the aetiology of the condition is not completely understood, it is believed that a number of factors (rather than one in isolation) are most likely to lead to its development. Thus, the onset of fibromyalgia syndrome can be influenced by hormonal and/or chemical imbalances, chronic stress and/or a traumatic event, genetic predisposition and even pre-existing illness.

In this hour-long webinar, Dr Nina Bailey covers:

  • An overview of the aetiology of fibromyalgia
  • The signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia
  • Factors that can contribute to or exacerbate fibromyalgia syndrome
  • Managing symptoms via dietary manipulation and lifestyle change
  • Supporting nutrients/supplements for those with fibromyalgia syndrome
