What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal pain disorder often triggered by a physically or psychologically stressful event or trauma. As a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body, fibromyalgia symptoms tend to linger, even though the individual may have healed properly from the prior stressor or event. In other cases, the disorder may arise without a known cause or trigger.

What are Anxiety Disorders?

Anxiety becomes a mental health issue when it begins to impact a person’s daily life and their ability to live their life fully. Did you know that anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental illnesses? In 2013, an estimated 3 million Canadians (11.6%) aged 18 or older reported they had a mood or anxiety disorder. An anxiety disorder is a chronic condition characterized by excessive symptoms of uneasiness, worry, and even fear that negatively interferes with an individual’s ability to function calmly. When anxiety persists or stops a person from participating in everyday activities, it may be due to an anxiety disorder.
