What is … IT?

What the heck is fibromyalgia?

The truth is, we know of it. We know it is about pain. We know it is chronic, there is no cure.

We do not know with certainty how it happens, what toll it will take on a person’s life, or why it varies from person to person.

How do we expect other people to understand fibromyalgia when we don’t really know ourselves? It’s a guessing game at this point. How do you explain something like Fibromyalgia Syndrome?

Let’s get down to basics when asked what is fibromyalgia, keep it simple…

No one gets in line to get a diagnosis. We receive it. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. We were never given a choice! Let’s at least work together to promote awareness and understanding of this syndrome.
