Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by muscle pain and fatigue. Usually the muscle aches are located in the so-called "sensitive points" because they hurt when pressed and are located in the neck, shoulders, back, hip, arms and legs. This discomfort is usually accompanied by morning muscle stiffness, difficulties falling asleep, symptoms of anxiety and depression, headaches and memory problems.

The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown and is more common in middle-aged women.

To this has been added the use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation that has as a mechanism of action to increase the pain threshold and thus reduce the discomfort of this disease.
