What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a condition of widespread muscular pain accompanied by fatigue, digestive, mood, and/or sleep issues.

Risk factors include family history, gender (effects more women), and history of rheumatic conditions.

What is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?

IBS is a chronic and sometimes severe condition associated with the intestines and the abdomen. Symptoms can include bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea, or alternating constipation or diarrhea.
