Is fibromyalgia a progressive disorder, meaning does it get worse over time?
In most people, fibromyalgia symptoms go through flares (when symptoms are severe) and remissions (when symptoms are minimal or absent). Some people find ways to dramatically reduce their symptoms and enter long-term remissions. Others, however, experience an overall worsening of symptoms over time, and these cases could be considered progressive.
