I sometimes have deep intense aching pain from fibromyalgia that can bring me to tears. I have headaches almost daily. I sometimes even have pain in my cheekbones if I eat something chewy. I feel very bruised all over and if I injure myself even slightly, it feels like a bad injury for weeks at a time.


The term arthritis refers to stiffness in the joints. See Answer
