Prognosis of Fibromyalgia

The prognosis of fibromyalgia is not very encouraging. Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition with symptoms that may or may not improve as time goes by. It is possible in some cases that people experience long years of remission in between attacks.

While fibromyalgia is not a degenerative disease, its symptoms may get better or worse over time. There is no predicting the course of this condition.
