May 12: International Fibromyalgia Awareness Day

My referral links are below. If you click through and take action, I may be compensated.

The battles people with fibromyalgia fight against symptoms like widespread pain, fatigue and brain fog aren’t always visible to the outside world. But that doesn’t mean the battles aren’t happening, or that it doesn’t take an immense amount of strength to get through each day. That’s why people with fibro often call themselves “fibro warriors” — because you know how hard you have to fight to not only get through your symptoms, but also how hard you have to fight to be believed and to get the treatment and support you need.

May 12 is the day to raise awareness about this autoimmune disorder.

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.

Symptoms sometimes begin after a:
physical trauma
surgery
infection
or significant psychological stress.

In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

You can help spread awareness about Fibromyalgia by sharing this post. One of my favorite ways of spreading awareness is wearing a t-shirt about Fibromyalgia.

I ask that you help spread the word about Fibromyalgia awareness. Thank You!
