Welcome to the Richmond Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Support Group. Fibromyalgia specifically, and chronic pain generally, is a profound struggle, and little understood even within the medical community. This "hidden disability" is difficult for those not affected to understand. While there are some treatments for symptoms, there is no cure, and no one treatment works well for everyone. This group is about connecting people who have fibromyalgia or other forms of chronic pain, and creating an atmosphere where people can share information and enjoy the company of others who understand the challenges of living with chronic pain. If you want to talk to someone who "gets you" without having to explain, you're in the right place!
The Richmond Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Support Group is an outreach of the Richmond Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
