“Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency”, Natalie Goldberg
Stress and excitement are two main triggers for an acute onset of fibromyalgia in a highly anxious person. Stress may be only minimal or severe, temporary or chronic, nonetheless it is usually bound to bring on an attack, usually a day or two after the episode. Excitement can be happy or frightening, but that too usually precipitates pain, fatigue, sleeplessness and perhaps depression among a host of other undesirable symptoms.
