Constant pain is a symptom of many medical conditions. It's possible that fibromyalgia may be the culprit, especially if:
  • the pain is chronic, that is, it never seems to go away
  • your pain is widespread
  • the pain is accompanied by other symptoms, such as insomnia and fatigue
See your doctor if you are experiencing these symptoms or any other form of persistent pain.
