The fibromyalgia section of ChronicPainConnection is growing. One of my goals here is to provide you with core articles that cover all of the key information about fibromyalgia. To that end, I’d like to share the first three articles on fibromyalgia basics with you:
These articles will be particularly helpful for newly diagnosed patients, people who are wondering if they might have fibromyalgia, and families, friends or employers of individuals with FM. Even if you’ve had fibromyalgia for a number of years, you might discover some new information.
Over the past few years research has begun to unlock some of the mysteries surrounding this illness. As a result, many times the "facts" you read about fibromyalgia may be outdated and, in some cases, inaccurate. For that reason, I want to assure you that the information included in these articles is the most up-to-date and accurate available.
