Fibromyalgia Awareness Day ~ Little Known Facts About FMS


Fibromyalgia Awareness Day is the day of the year that is set aside to bring attention & focus to a misunderstood & too often unacknowledged disease that affects millions of people all around the world

If you’re here reading this, you probably have a fairly good idea of what FMS is, or at least how it manifests either in yourself or someone you know.

Let’s look at a few of the less known facts about Fibromyalgia:

  • Perspiration Accumulation! ~ It is not unusual for people with FMS to experience excessive sweating due to increased body temps

    And yet there are many, many people (including doctors) who still claim it’s “all in our heads”. At least things are better than several years ago, when a Fibro “expert” at the Univ. of Penn no less, told me it’s a just a trash basket diagnosis. He insisted that I must have been physically (or maybe even sexually?) abused as a child because that will later cause these symptoms to appear. Can you believe this guy? At least he is long retired now….
