(HealthDay News) -- Fibromyalgia is a little-understood disorder that causes pain and other symptoms throughout the body.

The womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions for better living with fibromyalgia:

  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Exercise as much as you can. Try to be physically active as much as possible if fibromyalgia pain prevents you from exercising.
  • Make adjustments at work to help you better manage fibromyalgia. Examples could include reducing your hours or switching to a less demanding job.
  • Eat a nutritious, balanced diet.
  • Talk to your doctor about ways to control pain.
  • Seek emotional support from friends and family members.
