Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue. People with fibromyalgia have "tender points" on the body. Tender points are specific places on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, arms, and legs. These points hurt when pressure is put on them. Read more on MedlinePlus.gov.

Get plenty of rest nightly; sometimes a short daytime nap.
Keep moving, but don't overdue like trying to clean the whole house at one time. I had to cut way back on my daily activities, but eventually learned to balance activity. If I know that I am going to have a busy day, or want to do something extra, I take it easier the day before, and expect and accept that I may have two or three days downtime afterward. Try not to stress, it makes it worse.
I've had fibromyalgia/etc. for years and it seems to have improved; either that or I've just learned to live with it better. I don't know what it is like to not hurt somewhere in/on my body as I also have osteoarthritis & plain arthritis according to doctors. Sleep with extra pillows supporting your body, i.e., under your arm & between your legs if you are a side sleeper. Back sleeper? Put pillows under your knees, this helps lower back, and again it helps to put a small pillow under each arm to keep them level with your body. I also take some medication for another problem that helps me sleep better at night. Check out a book on fibromyalgia at the library or buy one, reading about it and using the suggestions helped me. I also try to keep upbeat by watching funny TV shows; laughter is the best medicine. Good luck to all who have it. I was diagnosed about 20 years ago & do more today than I did in beginning.
