“Most of the time I could barely stand to be touched, and it felt like my legs were on fire all the time.”
This is what it’s like to suffer from Fibromyalgia. Symptoms make your everyday life incredibly difficult. Mundane, daily tasks sometimes become nearly impossible.
And too often, these symptoms are only made worse because health care providers find it difficult to understand and even more troublesome to treat.
It’s characterized by widespread, often mysterious, pain in muscles, joints, and tissues.
Doctors usually suggest dietary changes, pain liniments, and prescription medications that can feel time-consuming and hard to keep up with.
Not to mention that for some, these medications have uncomfortable and sometimes severe side effects.
