  1. I have suffered with polymyagia for the past 7 years which is a family illness of fibromyalgia so this is encouraging news as no one knows unless they suffer with this illness how excruciating the pain can be affecting everyday life

  2. It took me several times to read the article and it’s about time that fibromyalgia is really real… The level of pain in which we live with everyday life is so painful that I don’t want to get out of bed every morning afternoon or evening… I live my life one day at a time… Life in general is hard enough but dealing with this condition/illness in which they did not state if fibro is either of the two ~ ??? Yes… There is other conditions/illness that comes along with fibromyalgia that has it to come forth… Listening to the voice of one person isn’t enough to understand how this takes a toll on our bodies of living day in and out of pain… It’s not enough…

  3. I have been out of work for 15 yrs due to my FM, CF and many other Health issues. 13 yrs ago I tried for disability (I live in Indiana) and spent a several years trying, got a lawyer (who helped me NOT at all) and was subsequently given a final denial. With all the new cases going to Court and being approved can I file again. ( My state had me as disabled and on State insurance until SS gave me the final denial) Or can I file again with one of my other Health problems?? I was never given a real answer when I asked, I have a family of 4 and we could really use the extra money- I might be able to go to Dr again..
