Fibromyalgia is a pain syndrome that effects all over your body. It’s diagnosed by symptoms, and it really does affect you. People with fibro really have a decreased quality of life, and it’s terrible to see because you still have all of your organs intact. You still look like you’re normal. You look fine, but you’re in bad pain. Some people don’t even believe it’s real! “Oh, Fibromyalgia doesn’t exist.” Yes, it does. I’ve seen a whole lot of people come in here with tremendous pain, and it is Fibromyalgia and it does exist. It’s not in your head, and I want you to know that. I want you to know that I do feel bad for you, and I’d love to help you change your condition.
