What is Hypervigilance and How it is Connected to Fibromyalgia

Hypervigilance is a state of being constantly tense, on guard, and exceptionally aware of your environment.

The idea is that our brains become overly aware of things, which can include painful stimuli, noises, bright lights, and general activity.
