2-Generalised pain and/or fatigue :

Generalised pain is pain that spreads all over the body without a proper way to localise the source. Pain can be sharp or dull, depending on the location. It can include distant parts of the body that have no connection to each other, or in places close to each other. A person may complain about pain in the abdomen, one leg, and the head.

This pain is usually chronic, and he/she has symptoms for months that induce trouble in their professional and personal life, stopping them from participating in various activities. In general, all over body pain can be a sign of increased body temperature, chronic fatigue, or some illnesses that affect many fatigue, or some illnesses that affect many joints and/or muscles.

When these are excluded from the diagnosis, a doctor will consider fibromyalgia. Generalised pain is characteristic for fibromyalgia. It is an illness of unknown origin, but includes pain all over in various parts of the body.

These locations experience pain with just the touch of a finger. It is known to have psychological disorders as a background. The pain they are experiencing is deep, sharp, or dull and can come and go. However, fibromyalgia doesn’t satisfy the criteria for somatic disorder, because there is evidence that in this illness, the nerves are abnormal, and in somatic disorders, there are no anatomical damages at all.
