Finding Relief from Fibromyalgia.  

Finding Relief from FibromyalgiaDo you feel like you’ve been run over by a bus? This is how people with fibromyalgia often describe their symptoms in an effort to illustrate how painful and debilitating it can be. Fibromyalgia is one of the invisible diseases, a condition that has no outward signs and no definitive method of diagnosis. Much like depression (with which it’s often associated), you can’t tell someone has fibromyalgia just by looking at them; and getting the right diagnosis can be a lengthy process.

These symptoms can lead to difficulty with everyday activities, loss of coordination, and unexplained sensations; they generally begin in the lower extremities but symptoms can be present in the hands as well.
