I'm sure some of you are wondering what is up with the spoons.... While you can learn about Fibromyalgia here, what you really MUST read is The Spoon Theory. Yes, The Spoon Theory. This story does a better job of explaining what it is like to live with chronic pain than anything I could ever come up with on my own. Please, take a minute to read it! It will help you to understand what its like to live with not just Fibromyalgia, but all types of chronic pain.
Some quick Fibromyalgia facts:
-The major symptoms of FM include: chronic, widespread body pain; moderate to severe fatigue; sleep disorders and disturbances; and problems with cognitive functioning and memory.
-Recent studies have suggested that FM patients have generalized disturbance in pain processing and an amplified response to stimuli that would not ordinarily be painful in healthy individuals.
-Since there is no known cure for FM, treatment focuses on relieving symptoms and improving function.
-Approximately 10 million Americans have fibromyalgia (FM) with a ratio of about 8 to 2, women over men, and it occurs in people of all ages, even children.
