Understanding fibromyalgia, and how you can help
How can we be of assistance?
Even though fibromyalgia is estimated to affect millions throughout the globe, unfortunately the cause of the disorder is unknown. It’s understood to be related to an abnormality of certain chemicals that change the way the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) interprets pain. This means that people who suffer from the condition may have varying symptoms. As the cause of the condition is still very unclear, there is no known cure. Those affected must learn to live with it and the pain it causes.
Yet it's not only difficult for the person with fibromyalgia, but can also be hard on those close to the person. To understand more about the condition and how one can support someone who is suffering from it, click through this gallery.
