I am Amber Taylor, a senior Exercise Science/Pre-Physical Therapy major at Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, MS. I am involved in a senior research project on causal factors of FMS. For my senior project, I chose to study fibromyalgia because I feel a need to help FMS patients. There has to be a cause for this debilitating disorder. Please help by taking just a few minutes to answer the 20, simple, one word answer questions below. I listed my email address in case you do not feel comfortable putting your responses to the questions on the board. Simply "copy and paste" the questions into your forum response or email so it will make answering the questions easier for you. Participating in this survey is a voluntary action.
