Undstanding Paresthesia's Connection to Fibromyalgia

Paresthesia is a condition that results in a burning sensation, tingling, prickling, or even numbness. This condition often occurs in the hands and extremities of the body. The symptoms associated with this condition can vary in severity from mild to very severe. Depending on the reason paresthesia is present, the condition may last chronically or it will disappear after a short period of time. With fibromyalgia, it is not uncommon for paresthesia to occur without the sensation of pain, but pain can be felt sometimes when it is present.

Pain and Fatigue Study from 2008

I was looking around for news about Fibromyalgia, and I stumbled upon this older article from 2008. I've always wondered why it seems that specific ailments target one gender more than others. The first time I encountered the situation was when I finally found a name for my bladder condition, and attended an event on the subject. It seemed 9/10 of those diagnosed were female, and I've found that Fibromyalgia also seems to target women more frequently than men, although I'm not sure the numbers are quite as extreme with Fibromyalgia as is the case with Interstitial Cystitis.
