    Prognosis of Fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia is a lifelong condition, which does not get worse in most patients and is not fatal. It can have recurrence (exacerbations) and remissions (decrease) of symptoms over time. Symptoms may vary in severity from mild or severe disabling and the emotional instability can be substantial. Taking all your medications as prescribed by the doctor and following a healthy lifestyle can help to improve symptoms and the quality of life over time.
