Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder which affects the normal functioning of the body. In this condition, musculoskeletal pain is the main symptom of the patient. It occurs mainly in females as compared to males. Patients with Fibromyalgia suffer from fatigue, pain in the whole body and sleep disturbance due to excessive pain. There are no specific causes for this condition but several trigger factors are responsible for the flare-up of this condition. In Ayurveda, the condition of Fibromyalgia is interpreted with Vata Vyadhi and most probably with Mamsagatavata. Mamsagatavata is a Vata dominant disorder. Vata Dosha’s vitiation is responsible for another dosha’s vitiation as Pitta and Kapha depend on Vata. In Vatavyadhi Vata is the main dosha which is vitiated and Kapha and Pitta depend on Vata so they are also vitiated. As fibromyalgia is correlated to Mamsagatavata which affects mainly Mamsa (muscle tissue). However, Vata may also be covered by other Factors like Pitta, Kapha, Mamsa Meda, Asthi, Majja, Shukra, Anna, Mutra and Pusrisha which is known by the word Avarana. Avarana can be defined as an obstruction in the path of Vata dosha that traps Vata within the passage. Let’s start a detailed study of Fibromyalgia according to Ayurvedic prospect.
