Nursing Care Plan – Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome characterized by fatigue, diffuse musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, sleep disturbance, and the presence of tender points on physical examination. There is no known etiology, but theories have suggested a variety of possible pathophysiologic mechanisms, such as neural-hormonal disturbance, antecedent physical trauma, viral infection, immune dysregulation, psychiatric disturbances and heightened sensitivity to pain. Complications include disability and inability to maintain functional roles.
