I pray that anyone that says "it's all in their heads" gets this awful condition. Thank God for doctors that work with patients and finds a combination of drugs that work to relieve the pain. No matter what they name it, it is real pain.

Anyone who thinks fibromyalgia is a non-disorder is living under a rock. Perhaps it's because many of us who suffer from it have grown weary of being treated like we're hypochondriacs or scam artists, so we just hide it as best we can. It goes hand-in-hand with autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis or CFIDS (correct medical name Chronic Fatigue AND IMMUNE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME). Just because it took the medical establishment decades to recognize some of these and give them a medical code number does NOT mean they weren't already a widespread problem. Of course, once named, the pharm industry won't hesitate to promote it and make money! Witness the countless ads on evening TV to take a pill and fix it: headaches, PMS, indigestion, erectile dysfunction.(How about giving up alcohol and stress and doing a little yoga?) I find it supremely ironic that a high-functioning Olympic champion gets bludgeoned for a little 420 use, when we push "legal" drugs -- with HUGE side effects -- all over the place! No wonder our kids think experimenting is OK; they just look at the medicine cabinet! Where do people keep their *toothpaste* these days?
