Where can I find out more about FM?

There is a great deal of excellent research and clinical information about fibromyalgia. Please refer to other sections of this website, as well as to other Fibromyalgia websites listed below.

Fibromyalgia, like ME/CFS, continues to remain a somewhat controversial illness, and a number of doctors continue to believe that it causally is linked with psychiatric illness. However, like ME/CFS, extensive research has been done that demonstrates clear physiological dysregulation and abnormalities in FM patients. Obviously, as with any other chronic illness, a person with FM can develop secondary depression or anxiety.
