Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a medical condition characterized by muscle pain and tender points distributed throughout the body, along with a range of other possible symptoms. Although the World Health Organization (WHO) has included fibromyalgia in its disease classification system, ICD-10, there is still no consensus on identifiable, objective physical abnormalities. Nonetheless, patients suffer from symptoms, and the diagnosis is made by excluding other diagnoses. During this interactive training day, we will focus on the symptoms experienced by patients, potential causes, and treatment options. Differential diagnostic considerations will also be discussed. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to share (both personal and professional) experiences among course participants.
