I am a 46 year old woman that was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in the U.S. 24 years ago. At the time hospitals called it Fibrositis but the Rheumatologist that I saw was amazing! He knew exactly what was going on with my body and started to help me understand why I had pain in every muscle and did not have a name for it or cause. He explained to me that from what he understands, a trauma is a huge cause of the pain I felt/feel now. Something very big in my life had caused my emotions to manifest physical and REAL PAIN in my body.

I am now living in Australia, many years later after being diagnosed and Australia is a bit behind in the times with understanding that Fibromyalgia is debilitating and keeps me from having a good quality of life. I have pain in every part of my body, I have chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, migraines, and more.
