Welcome to FibroMen - We're Raising Awareness of Fibromyalgia in Men.
The aim and focus of this site is fibromyalgia in men - raising awareness of the syndrome and providing information to help men, their families, partners and carers with diagnosis, treatment and coming to terms with the condition. FibroMen was established by a long-term "FibroMan" who failed to get treatment at the start of his symptoms, who put it down to over-exertion and ended up in hospital on a few occasions and who now has life-long auto-immune conditions on top of fibro - the message is simple "Get Checked Out!" - if it's fibromyalgia you probably won't be cured, but you'll learn how to cope and live with it. FibroMen exists to raise public awareness of fibromyalgia in men and to inform, support and empower sufferers, their families and carers.
We want you to get involved to make this site THE point of reference for ALL who struggle on a daily basis. We want your input, either by commenting on our blog or by using the contact form, Why not share your story and help raise awareness among fellow sufferers, or tell us how much of a FibroSurvivor you are by sharing your little successes!
New Book "Men with Fibromyalgia"
"Over 80% of women diagnosed with Fibromyalgia have Mild to Moderate symptoms, while over 80% of men diagnosed have Moderate to Severe symptoms.
Why the discrepancy between women and men?
It is unknown what causes Fibromyalgia, or even why it affects people differently, but it is known to cause lifelong widespread chronic pain, constant fatigue, loss of brain function and mental acuity known as brain fog, loss of physical coordination and strength."
"Men with Fibromyalgia" is available to pre-order on Amazon now.
