    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain: A Survival Manual

    I was diagnosed with RRMS in 9/02 and later with fibromyalgia or what I think is more likely CMP (chronic myofascial pain) a couple of years later when my doctors felt the pain I was experiencing could be separate from MS. I have neuralgia as well as muscle and joint pain. I have found the book listed to be helpful, as well as the related advocate, and trigger point books.
