Individuals who experience fibromyalgia symptoms combined with weight gain are common. However, the factors causing the weight gain can be directly or indirectly related to the disease itself.
Fibromyalgia often leads to hormonal imbalances which can slow metabolism leading to weight gain. The impact of the imbalance on the levels of cortisol, thyroid, serotonin and insulin, as well as the production of growth hormones, is the leading factor in weight gain seen by our patients.
Fibromyalgia also leads to fatigue which in turn leads to increased weight. Fibromyalgia syndrome creates sleep disturbances where quality sleep becomes increasingly more difficult and ultimately leads to fatigue throughout the day. This lack of quality sleep at night typically means that our patients workout less and eat more during the day.
Other fibromyalgia syndrome factors leading to weight gain include chronic pain which leads to less physical activity, higher hypocretin production which leads to fatigue and overeating, and drugs taken to fight off depression which often leads to overeating and hormonal imbalances.
