Fibromyalgia and Depression Nearly a third of people with fibromyalgia also have major depression when they are diagnosed. The relationship between the two is unclear. Some researchers believe depression may be a result of the chronic pain and fatigue. Others suggest that abnormalities in brain chemistry may lead to both depression and an unusual sensitivity to pain. Symptoms of depression may include difficulty concentrating, hopelessness, and loss of interest in favorite activities.
Sugar and Fatigue with Fibromyalgia avoiding hypoglycemia is extra important for fibromyalgia patients, considering that some studies suggest people with fibromyalgia may have an impaired ability to produce the hormones necessary to keep blood sugar stable.
Brain Fog/Fibro Fog in Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Brain fog (also called fibro fog or cognitive dysfunction) is one of the most common complaints of people with fibromyalgia (FMS) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS or ME/CFS). For many, it can be severe and can have just as big an impact on their lives as pain or fatigue. In fact, some people say brain fog is more of a disability than their physical symptoms.
