  1. Hi Fred,

    Great article. I had heard of fibromyalgia many times but had no idea what it was. Your article explains it beautifully. I have had back pain for a while but it is easing now so I don’t think I have it.
    Friends I know have had it and now I have a far better understanding of what they went through. Thanks again,

    Kev

    • Hi Kevin, thanks for the comment, more then likely you don’t have it, if it’s just back pain. Who knows for sure, unless you have a doctors check up. Most people don’t think of this disorder, because they have never heard of it. I’m trying to bring more awareness to it.

  2. Hi Fred! Thank you for telling us about this disorder, fibromyalgia. I never knew this disorder exists. It seems that it is a genetic condition that gets triggered by environmental events. What is the main difference between fibromyalgia and arthritis? Will supplement like Glucosamine work to control the pain from fibromyalgia?
    Thank you!

    • Hi Kai, thank you for the comment, the difference between fibromyalgia and arthritis. Arthritis affects the joints, where fibromyalgia affects the muscles and nerves. Glucosamine will help fibromyalgia patients, by reducing pain and help build stronger joints. If you need any other info. just leave me a message below.

  3. This is a really interesting article with a lot of good information, but I genuinely have a question for you. I’m a younger individual, but I’ve been having pain in my joints for a while now. Is it possible for anybody to get this condition? Really curious about that.

  4. Hi Fred
    Thank you for a clear and succinct explanation of Fibromyalgia. I had heard of it before but didn’t know what it was but now I have a much better understanding of this disease. I didn’t realise it affected the muscles and nerves and always assumed it was similar to arthritis. Thanks for giving me a good overview.

    Regards,
    Megan

    • Thank you Megan for the comment, a lot of the time when you here fibromyalgia, you here arthritis. Many people think that it is a type, but in reality the pain that is usually associated with fibromyalgia comes from the nerves.

  5. Hello Fred,
    I know about fibromyalgia, but I have never dived deeper into what it means to have this disease. It sounds to be very painful and it must also be mental distressing having all this different kind of symptoms.
    Very interesting to know that fibromyalgia can be triggered by a trauma, huge stress or infections.
    It is sad that there is no known cure for this disease. Hopefully, the research will find out one day soon.
    Thank you for spreading the understanding of this disease.

    • Thank you for the comment Pernilla. I do have some friends with fibro and they tell me that it is worse than we can imagine. That was really scary sounding when I heard them say that. I didn’t know how bad it actually was until then. I guess we just can’t justify the severeness of it. I wonder sometimes whether they want to cure the diseases or make medicine just to treat.
