Thanks for posting your query.
Fibromyalgia is a common syndrome associated with long-term, body-wide pain and tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues.
It can also be associated with fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression, and anxiety.
The numbness and nausea are not usually associated with fibromyalgia.
The symptoms that your wife is having could be due to rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, vitamin D 3 deficiency, Vitamin B 12 deficiency or hormonal imbalances like thyroid disorders.
A direct examination by an orthopedician and few investigations including blood tests and X-rays of affected joints will help in the proper diagnosis.
Meanwhile she can start taking mild pain killer like motrin and do a hot fomentation of the affected joints for pain relief. Starting with vitamin B complex supplements might help with the numbness.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
