About the project
We might hear about fibromyalgia from drug commercials, but do we really know much about what it is? With our site, we wish to promote a greater understanding of fibromyalgia. We hope to accomplish this by letting those who deal with it each day, whether as a patient or doctor, tell their stories.
What can treatment mean if drugs don’t work? And how do patients cope when they have no choice but to live with the syndrome, one that might be hard to explain to those who can’t see the pain it causes?
