About Fibromyalgia

Also called Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FM or FMS) is a common and disabling disorder affecting up to 15% of the population (according to a study at McMaster University), women more often than men. Despite the condition's frequency, the diagnosis is often missed.
Patients with fibromyalgia usually ache all over, sleep poorly, are stiff on waking, and are tired all day.
