Fibromyalgia is a complex and controversial disease. It is complex because it presents with varied symptoms that often don’t seem to be connected and is thus hard to diagnose. And the origin of the disease remains a mystery to a large extent.
It is controversial because to this day many doctors won’t diagnose it because they believe their symptoms are psychological and imaginary.
I aim to share a lot of information on my blog to create as much understanding and awareness about fibromyalgia. I aim to share information about the symptoms, treatment, similarities to Lupus (who knew patients are often misdiagnosed with one or the other!) and lastly about the latest research on the disease – as progress is being made.
I am going to start off with the below infographic that provides a good overview of fibromyalgia and its history.
I wish health and happiness for you.
