Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia and why we must thank Lady Gaga!!

It was just another September morning in 2017 when Lady Gaga announced via twitter that she suffers from Fibromyalgia.

Although I prefer to use the term Chronic Widespread Pain instead, this is just technical nomenclature. I have seen a small surge in Fibromyalgia related queries since Lady Gaga went public with her diagnosis. I find young women especially are not hesitant to talk about it anymore. The stigma seems to be receding and I hope the “celebrity bounce” in queries continues.

The fact of the matter remains that millions needlessly suffer from chronic pain conditions and do not seek appropriate help. While there may be no “cure” in sight for now, there are various pain management interventions that can be useful in controlling the severity of the pain and suffering associated with Fibromyalgia.

If you suffer from Fibromyalgia and need help kindly arrange an appointment.
