  • advice from the experts who understand you and self-help suggestions for overcoming the obstacles created by your chronic illness
  • new treatments to try (both drug and nondrug)
  • the latest research findings to help explain your many symptoms
  • strategies for reducing your pain, fatigue, trouble sleeping and other symptoms
  • a section on Therapies That Work to highlight what other patients find beneficial for reducing the impact of their fibromyalgia.

Here are a few topics in the current Fibromyalgia Network Journal that you don’t want to miss:

  • Differences between how the brain responds to pain in men and women could make women slightly more vulnerable to getting fibro, as well as symptoms of anxiety.
  • A chemical produced by your immune cells is increased fourfold and could explain your pain, fatigue, brain fog, and sense of emotional bankruptcy.
  • A test looking at heart function during sleep is 14 times more likely to set you apart from healthy people.
  • Given how common digestive disorders are in fibro, certain nutrients are often low. One doctor discusses the consequences and offers treatment suggestions.
  • Learn the do’s and don’ts of how to use a device that costs less than $100 and it’s proven in treatment studies to activate your body’s natural pain relieving system.
  • When you exercise, even mildly, is your cardiovascular system keeping up? Learn why exercise is harder for you than for healthy people.
  • When pain and stress levels increase, this causes a substance to shoot up in your blood that enhances pain, sleepiness, memory difficulties, and weight gain.
  • More than 4,200 patients responded to our survey, Fibro Over Time, and the results highlight several factors that influence your likelihood of getting better.
  • Read how combo therapies helped one patient, and treatment for sleep apnea made enough of a difference that another patient returned to a full-time job.
