Disability for patientes witj Fibromyalgia

This illness as invalidating, and we can be given our disability. The is currently one of the diseases that causes more pain in people who suffer from it - mostly women - whose symptoms are often associated with other very common disorders and difficult to diagnose by the medical community in general. Fibromyalgia is a rheumatologic disease originating in the central nervous system that mainly affects the soft or fibrous tissues of the body such as tendons, muscles and ligaments. Its diagnosis is not very easy to carry out by rheumatologists, this due to the lack of absolute diagnostic criteria for which there is no standardization of the clinical picture characteristic of this disease, the very common symptomatology and associated with other diseases such as osteoarthritis, depression, sleep apnea, chronic fatigue syndrome, among others, and because patients with fibromyalgia do not present abnormalities either in laboratory tests or at first sight that presumes the condition of this disease. This has led on the part of doctors to seek methods that beyond finding fibromyalgia, choose to rule out other diseases with similar symptoms, therefore its diagnosis is clinical, that is, it is based on the patient's symptoms. According to the American College of Rheumatology, the diagnostic criteria include a chronic diffuse pain that is present for more than three months associated with a sensitivity to palpation in at least 11 of the 18 pain points of fibromyalgia, classic points of the human body that they correspond to areas where there is a greater number of nociceptive receptors (pain receptors).
