Thank you for the article about fibromyalgia in the September/October 2009 issue (“Is Fibromyalgia Real?”). I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2000 but have always been reluctant to admit it. Why? Because of the misconception that we fibromyalgia sufferers are just depressed, overweight, middle-aged women. The article was well written and informative. I'm excited about the new neurological theories being researched and hope to see follow-up articles on fibromyalgia as the information becomes available.
