    MIND OVER MATTER? Patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia are more likely to have a history of mental illness, be overweight and economically disadvantaged. Some doctors say their suffering may stem from difficult circumstances rather than disease.

    article........The link I found is :http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090209/ap_on_bi_ge/fibromyalgia_drug_companies

    There is so much confusion tied to our DDs.

    But , IMHO , drug companies are more interested in making money than actually helping people....and SOME Drs. are brain dead.....

    Read and decide for yourself.
