Meet with local people who suffer from Fibromyalgia to discuss, share, laugh, and conquer the misconceptions regarding this disabling condition.

Support, understanding, and validation in a comfortable environment is important!

This meetup will always be an open group where people are invited but not obligated to discuss and share their experiences with various coping mechanisms, solutions for relief of pain, fatigue, fog, etc.

There are several remedies with published studies but empirical, first-hand experience would be of great value to this group. So anyone who has found a remedy or finds one in the future, please stick around and report back.

*Any information or discussion here is not a replacement for medical treatment, psychological or psychiatric services or counseling. This SUPPORT GROUP does not treat, prescribe for or diagnose any condition. There are many different causes and manifestations of Fibromyalgia; your results/experience may vary from that of others

Terms of Service of Meetup prohibits defamatory remarks and the selling of merchandise or services. However, some products or services might be helpful to members so all such items will be limited to the SELLING discussion of the MESSAGE BOARD: http://www.meetup.com/chicagofibromyalgia/messages/boards...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
