    Dealing with Chronic Pain
    On top of suffering more migraines, fibromyalgia and a host of other ache-inducing ailments, women feel pain more acutely than men. But research shows promise for sufferers, and an active, healthy lifestyle is still very much attainable.

    The article is more about RA but at least "fibromyalgia" was mentioned.

    Just wanted to say that I am pleasantly surprised that fibro is mentioned in Oprah's newsletter. I know that over the years many people have suggested that she do a show on the subject and, as far as I know, she ignored all requests. She has done shows on many diseases so it seems like she wasn't interested in a disorder that isn't accepted as being valid by everyone. I guess it is a good thing that fibromyalgia is mentioned, at least it gives the disorder more exposure with the many people who read her newsletter. It would be helpful if more well-known people would speak up, which might help with credibility concerning all aspects of being afflicted with fibromyalgia.
