Health Tip: Help Ease Fibromyalgia Symptoms

(HealthDay News) -- If you've gone to the doctor complaining of widespread aches and pains without an obvious cause, it's possible you've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

The womenshealth.gov website provides these suggestions to help manage this often-misunderstood disorder:

  • Get plenty of quality sleep each night.

  • Be physically active. Perform gentle exercises, if possible.

  • Make adjustments at the office, such as cutting back on hours to adjusting the type of work you do.

  • Eat a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet.
