Fibro Fridays

If you've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (or many of the associated disorders) you've probably heard something about it being all in your head before. Whether it came from an unsympathetic doctor or friends and family, it can be hurtful when you're suffering and don't completely understand why yourself.

New research has been done in the past few years that sheds some light on Fibro and the body systems most involved. The truth of the matter is that a lot of it may be in our heads -- just not in the way those people intended the statements.

There is an article out that ties in a lot of the clinical studies done recently. Here is a link to it: Neurobiology Underlying Fibromyalgia Symptoms.

It's a long article, but the findings are encouraging for those of us who have been wanting this to be treated as a valid disorder. I'm hoping this kind of article and the studies behind it will fuel more studies and possibly better treatment options.

Take a gander over to the article and let me know if you have any questions or comments about the article.

Hi Margaret,

I didn't read all the article, but I'm glad to see you are dedicating Friday to Fibromyalgia. Of course, this is close to my heart since I've been dx with Fibro since 1992.

I'm glad you like the new feature. :o) It is a rather long article. I'm encouraged by it though. :o)
