Fibromyalgia syndrome is a condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain. Patients with fibromyalgia may also have muscle stiffness, increased sensitivity to pain, problems with mental processes, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and others. As symptoms of fibromyalgia syndrome mimic other chronic diseases, therefore its diagnosis takes a long time. According to a study published in Arthritis Research & Therapy journal in 2017, in Taiwan, the risk of coronary heart disease in fibromyalgia patients was 47% higher than in the general population. For fibromyalgia to be diagnosed, the differential diagnosis is most commonly used.  Other diagnostic procedures, such as laboratory evaluations are also used.

According to the study published in Aging Clinical and Experimental Research in 2014, fibromyalgia syndrome can affect people of all age group, with the high prevalence in the elderly population as the geriatric population is more vulnerable towards pain, reduced mobility, and sleep disruption.
