    I just read an article in a Spanish paper (I don't post it because I figure most people will not be able to read it) that says researchers in Barcelona are working on developing a test that will show your risk for developing FMS/CF and hopefully stopping it before it starts.

    They studied FMS patients in Spain, Mexico, UK and US and healthy patients and hope to develop a test soon. They believe that the sooner you identify the risks the better chances of stopping it from spiraling out of control. It looks to me, from reading the article, that they consider it to be a progressive disease, which most of us would agree with.

    I wouldn't mind volunteering for it;)

    I think this is a positive development and I wish them luck because it will ultimately help us.

    Thank you Lourdes for posting that. Whatever words I was unsure about I use an online translator to help me.

    I would love to be a part of the process if that is something they open to doing. It is good to see more scientists working on the illness.

    Funny I can read Spanish but speaking it, I have difficulties with it. After finishing my schooling, I hope to be more proficient in the language by that time.

    I was wondering if you are hispanic. A few weeks ago there was a thread that asked what everyone's nationality was. I was the only who responded as being hispanic.

    If you don't mind my asking, if you are hispanic, from what country? Both of my parents are from Puerto Rico and my sister and 2 of my female cousins have FMS. I have both FMS and CFIDS.

    See the link above. It is to the Spanish newspaper ABC and the article is in Spanish. Also, search on, it is from the U.S. National Institutes of Health. On the right side is a link to a Spanish language website, you can find more on FMS there. And finally, go to, that is the Spanish language Yahoo site and you can do a search under "Fibromialgia". I hope this helps.
