Abstract

I INTRODUCTION : Fibromyalgia is a form of soft tissue rheumatism. A combination of three terms Fibro (from the Latin fibra, or fibrous tissue), myo- (the Greek prefix myos, for muscles), and algia (from the Greek algos, which denotes pain)---fibromyalgia replaces earlier names for the syndrome that are still use by doctors and other health professionals such as myofibrositis, myofascitis, muscular rheumatism, fibrositis, and generalized musculoligamentous strain. Fibromyalgia is not a form of arthritis, since it is not associated with joint inflammation. When the Arthritis Foundation tried to categorize the 150 different from of musculoskeletal conditions in 1963, it created a classification known as soft tissue rheumatism. Included in this listing are conditions in which joints are not involved. Soft tissue rheumatism encompasses the supporting structures of joints (e.g., ligaments, bursae, and tendons), muscles, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia (FM) is merely a term used currently for individuals with chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain for which no alternative cause can be identified.[1] Individuals will sometimes only have on of these “idiopathic” pain syndromes over the course of their lifetime. But more often, individuals with one of these entities, and their family members, are likely to have several of these conditions. Many terms have been used to describe these co-aggregating syndromes and syndromes and symptoms, including functional somatic syndromes, somatization disorders, allied spectrum conditions, chronic multi symptom illnesses, medically unexplained symptoms, etc. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES :
