Is Fibromyalgia Real?

Believe me, I know it is and it always was. 

Fibromyalgia is real and associated with clear changes in biology of the nervous system, pain sensitivity, muscles, hormones, etc.  So you can imagine my surprise that while watching Dr. Oz today, he had a segment on his show, “Fibromyalgia: A Functional Medicine Approach“.  Notice the word “Medicine Approach” not psychological.  Some doctors argue that fibromyalgia is a symptom of depression, but I believe if you have depression with this, which I do not, it is because of people not believing that the pain you are feeling is real.

Symptoms – Mayo Clinic

Symptoms – WebMD
