Fibromyalgia is a clinical syndrome

characterized by chronic, diffuse pain and multiple tender points at defined points in muscle and other soft tissues. Other characteristic features of the syndrome include fatigue, sleep disturbances, irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, stiffness, headaches, depression, anxiety and decreased memory. In most instances fibromyalgia occurs without any precipitating factors. However it seems that it can also be triggered by trauma (e.g., surgery, childbirth, accident, sever infection, severe emotional strain) and can then be classified as posttraumatic fibromyalgia.  A combination of physical, anesthesiologic , and pharmacologic techniques are used in the management and treatment of this condition. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been studied for its effect on myofascial pain, muscle spasm and stiffness resulting in diminution or disappearance of painful symptomatology and functional recovery.
