About Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a real medical condition.

Fibromyalgia is a common, chronic medical condition that affects an estimated 6-12 million people in the United States. Despite its prevalence, nearly 70% of all fibromyalgia cases are undiagnosed. Although fibromyalgia affects both men and women of all ages, it is most common among women (80-90%) between the ages of 20 and 55. There are a range of symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, including chronic widespread pain and tenderness. These symptoms typically have a significant impact on patients’ daily activities. In fact, according to a survey of 2,569 patients, 35% said that fibromyalgia symptoms interfered with their daily living.

Fibromyalgia is a condition that can be misdiagnosed. And, sadly, some patients spend years seeing many doctors before they are diagnosed and get the help they need. But fibromyalgia is a condition that can be managed with proper treatment. Keep in mind, effective management of fibromyalgia often requires a team effort. You should work closely with a doctor who is familiar with treating it, and, for most patients, take medication and make lifestyle changes.
