Fibromyalgia in the News

There is a new study out showing that a drug approved for treating Narcolepsy is effective at treating pain and sleeplessness caused by Fibromyalgia. All the recent studies, from the brain studies to the Parkinson drug study and now this, seem to be supporting the new theory that Fibromyalgia is not a rheumatolgical disorder (as it has been treated for years) but actually a nuerological disorder. I hope this shift in thinking will help get the folks in the lab coats more interested in studying, and thus finding the best treatment for, a disease that seriously impacts the quality of life of MILLIONS of Americans.
