Frequently Asked Questions

How do fibromyalgia symptoms vary between men and women?

While there isn’t an established relationship between fibromyalgia and IBS, oftentimes, symptoms for the two diseases overlap. Fibromyalgia is a nervous system disorder and IBS is a gastrointestinal disorder, but both conditions are associated with a hypersensitivity to pain. While hypersensitivity for people with fibromyalgia is in their skin and muscles, hypersensitivity for IBS is in their intestines.
