5 Lessons a Doctor Learned About Fibromyalgia Only After She was Diagnosed

Lesson 1: Sexism has Contributed to Lack of Cure

Ginevra believes that there is sexism in medicine and that it is the main reason why fibromyalgia hasn’t been cured, especially since the science behind fibromyalgia hasn't been understood for more than 30 years. This is more behind than many other disease. The main reason for being behind is time wasted on debating on whether the disease exists or not. The disease mostly affects the female population and has suffered from sexism, which is why there hasn't been serious action taken to find the cure. She believed that if the disease affected mostly males, then there could be a cure at the moment or even perhaps a good institute built by the government to find a cure.
