    just want to let you know there are definitely a couple men here with fibro. As my name indicates, I'm not one of them, though. :) I'm sure one of them will reply to you soon! (Though with that said, I do have to say I don't know when they come on. Some might only check messages in the morning.)

    Hi, welcome to the board. Yes we do have quite a few men with FM as well as CFS on the board.

    Two or three are in the medical profession. I don't know the percentage is with men/women, but I do know that more women than men seem to be diagnosed with these illnesses.

    Glad you found us, and sure hope we hear from you often.

    Hi goofyone, welcome aboard! I'm female but am bumping for the late crowd. Take care, even with so many females on here you will find alot of non gender related information.

    I'm not sure if your question has been answered sufficiently or not. I think Bek's a man. Not sure if you were asking anything about doctors or not.

    Anyway, if you do have a question (like, "any men here with fm?"), you might want to change your title. (Just edit your post to change it.)

    Or maybe since it's morning now, more men will reply anyway!
