some results of that pain survey from last month. or was that two months ago?

The statistics I found most interesting:

  • Four out of ten (43%) fibromyalgia sufferers feel their physician is not knowledgeable about the disorder.
  • Over a third (35%) feel their physician does not take their fibromyalgia seriously.
  • 45% feel their family and friends do not take their fibromyalgia seriously.
  • Nearly half (49%) said their fibromyalgia symptoms began at a relatively young age (18-34).
  • Only 11% were diagnosed with fibromyalgia within the first year of symptoms.
  • 44% said it took five or more years before they were diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
