Are you looking for answers about fibromyalgia? Ask your questions here.

One of my most popular blog posts over at Marijke: Nurse Turned Writer is about fibromyalgia. It’s called Fibromyalgia: It’s Not Real/Yes It Is.

Since fibromyalgia has so many unanswered questions, it’s not all that surprising to learn that there are still many people who doubt its existence. But exist it does, and millions of people can show you why. But as someone with fibromyalgia, or someone who loves someone with fibromyalgia, what questions do you have? What answers are ¬†you looking for?

I am working on a project called 101 Answers About Fibromyalgia, but I need the kinds of questions that you are asking. So if you have a question about fibromyalgia, please leave it here (below in the comment section). As we gather more information – and more questions – we’ll begin addressing them, growing this site into a good source of information about the condition.

  1. Laura Laing says:

    What are the most common symptoms of fibromyalgia? And what’s the consensus on the medications that I see advertised on television? Are they usually helpful?

  2. Are any alternative therapies — chiropractic care, supplements, acupuncture, etc. — helpful for treating or managing fibromyalgia?

  3. Wendy H says:

    How prevalent is fibromyalgia? What are the main symptoms?

  4. Carol says:

    Is there any connection between fibromyalgia and diverticultis? Is the something that medical professions in general would be aware of?

  5. Hilda Brucker says:

    I know people have a hard time getting a diagnosis when they first have symptoms of FM. Is there any sort of diagnostic criteria at all to guide rheumatologists and/or primary care docs?

  6. Jodi says:

    What causes fibromyalgia?

    • Marijke says:

      That’s a tough question Jodi, but I’ll do my best to answer it. I’ll let you know when the post goes live. Thanks!

  7. Michele "Wojo" Wojciechowski says:

    I often see that the main symptom of fibromyalgia is being tired. How can you tell the difference between if you’re simply tired (because you’re doing a lot physically or going through a lot emotionally) or if you should see a doctor?

  8. Brenda R. says:

    Once diagnosed, what is the prognosis? Is FM curable? Can you ever become “FM free”? Or is it a disease that you have to manage and live with for the rest if your life?

    • MarijkeVD says:

      Good questions Brenda. From personal experience, it doesn’t seem to be curable, but I’ll get an expert to weigh in on this and let you know when the answer goes live.
