8. Sensory overload
People suffering from fibromyalgia are definitely more sensitive to overstimulation of their senses by the environment such as loud noises, bright lights, strong odors, and so on. If any of these happens, it can lead to a severe headache or a migraine, and a host of other symptoms. Staying away from places and situations that may expose the patient to sensory overload will prevent an undesirable upsurge of symptoms.
