I believe it's a fake disease made up by the pharmaceutical companies. Anyone who treats their body like crap, does not drink water, eats fast food every day & does not exercise can be diagnosed with fibromyalgia. It's a cop out disease for people who treat their bodies like crap. My SIL eats candy all day, lives off of McDonald's & chik-fil-A, is an alcoholic & is as lazy as a human can get. Well, she has just been diagnosed with it. Yeah...right, as if her symptoms have NOTHING to do with the fact that her body is starving for water, nutrients & exercise. Just another way for the FDA, pharmaceuticals & insurance companies to make an extra buck.
You will never meet a person living a healthy lifestyle who has it.

I'm not highly undereducated. That was grossly rude of you to assume. My sister & her husband are nutritionists & this was their explanation about it. Lots of people come to her with "fibromyalgia" looking for help. Could be that they are totally wrong, or that these people are misdiagnosed, but she seems to be very helpful with patients who claim they have it, just by changing their diet. I am not the only one though who believe this. Google it you will find people with similar views.

samurai_chica, yes you are uneducated about FMS. OP mine was caused from injuries from a serious car accident. The causes can be from anything things in the environment, to mental stress, physical stress, there are many, many causes everyone is different. I fortunately got better after children, I still have some areas that are uncomfortable and I hate cold weather. When I was younger it almost put me on disability but I found ways to deal with it without taking meds such as massage and knowing when I needed to slow down and take a break.

maybe about FMS, sure...i'm only going by what my sister has explained. But to call me undereducated in general is just rude & untrue... I never said that i was right, that was just my opinion on the matter.
