Fibromyalgia AWARE Magazine Available Online

by Karen Lee Richards Patient Advocate

The National Fibromyalgia Association's magazine, Fibromyalgia AWARE, is now available online - and it's free

The NFA began publishing the magazine in 2002 and it remains the only consumer magazine devoted to fibromyalgia on the market. Fibromyalgia AWARE is an excellent publication featuring articles on the latest research news, treatment options, overlapping conditions, self-management techniques and lifestyle tips.

To access the magazine online, you do have to register, but there is no charge. Or if you're like me and still like the feel of an actual magazine in your hands, you can subscribe to the printed version which will be mailed to you.

I had the privilege of being the first Executive Editor of Fibromyalgia AWARE and since I left four years ago, it has continued to grow and improve. They always cover the most timely stories related to FM. For example, the current issue has an article about the recent discovery of the XMRV retrovirus in ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) patients. Several FM experts share their thoughts about how XMRV may or may not be related to fibromyalgia.
