If you have fibromyalgia it is important to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. Work with your doctor and other healthcare professionals to develop strategies for treating the symptoms associated with your fibromyalgia. Learn as much as you can about the condition and take responsibility for ensuring that your friends and family are aware of how it affects you so that they can support you in the best way possible.

Talk to others with the condition as they will have empathy for what you are going through. Join an online support group, write a blog or use social media to express your feelings, you may find that you are able to provide support for others who need it too.
