Fibromyalgia Support

By Dr Ananya Mandal, MD

There are several support groups worldwide to help fibromyalgia patients cope with their symptoms. The network of support groups worldwide encourages participation of the fibromyalgia community.

Participation in support groups helps patients reach out to others with similar symptoms, challenges and problems and helps them foster an improved understanding of management including exercises and lifestyle adaptations and modifications.
