Types of Fibromyalgia Symptoms
Primary fibromyalgia has painful symptoms that cannot be associated with, nor attributed to, an underlying illness or disease. Concomitant fibromyalgia symptoms occur alongside an unrelated illness or conditions such as scoliosis or arthritis. Reactive or secondary fibromyalgia symptoms begin after the onset of another parallel illness or an injury. It is thought that the injury or illness may somehow trigger the fibromyalgia pain. Secondary fibromyalgia symptoms can begin as a result of another problem such as cancer, HIV, lupus, hypothyroidism and rheumatism. Physical injuries may also trigger secondary fibromyalgia symptoms that are limited to the area of the injury instead of being felt throughout the whole body as is typical of this disease..
