The biggest problem with Fibromyalgia is the fact that you have so much overall pain which has nothing to show for it.
It’s not that you want to go around with a plaque on your head saying ‘I’m in pain’, but if you look at the number of invisible symptoms of Fibromyalgia it makes you realise why people question your pain, when there is nothing to show for it.

Hopefully the more awareness raised an out Fibromyalgia the more others will understand your condition. This infographic from Fibromyalgia Treatment Group explains it all.
