Auto Immune Disorders & Fibromyalgia

An Autoimmune Disorder is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells in your body. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakes part of your body, like your joints or skin, as foreign and it releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells. About 50 million Americans -- the majority of them women, especially women of working and childbearing age -- suffer from autoimmune ailments. Women - particularly African-American, Hispanic-American, and Native-American women - have a higher risk for some autoimmune diseases.

There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases, and some have similar symptoms which makes it hard to know which one you might have. Getting a diagnosis can be frustrating and stressful. Some common diseases that are generally considered autoimmune include celiac diseasediabetes type 1graves' diseaseinflammatory bowel diseasemultiple sclerosispsoriasisrheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.

Fibromyalgia is the common, chronic rheumatic condition that affects the muscles and soft tissue causing widespread bodily pain. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful trigger points, which can be relieved through medications, lifestyle changes and stress management. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
