Resources For Those With Fibromyalgia

Resources For Those With Fibromyalgia

Unfortunately, there is no cure for fibromyalgia. If your symptoms are severe, filing a disability claim can be an important part of the recovery process because the benefits can give you the time you need to find an effective treatment strategy, but you’ll still need to consult with other professionals to figure out the best way to manage the condition on your own.

Thankfully, there are many organizations that are specifically set up to offer support to people with fibromyalgia. They might not be able to make any medical guarantees, but they can steer you towards treatment options that have worked for other patients. They can also help you educate other people so those around you will be better able to accommodate your needs.

The goal is to give you the confidence you need to enjoy your life to the fullest. Fibromyalgia can sound intimidating, but when properly managed, there’s no reason to allow it to dictate the terms of your existence.

With that in mind, Share Lawyers has compiled a handy list of resources that are available to those suffering from fibromyalgia and other forms of chronic pain. These resources are intended to supplement the advice of a trained medical expert. You should still consult your doctor to develop a treatment program that will work best for you.

Toronto Fibro Support Group:
In the Toronto Fibro Support Group, people with fibromyalgia offer guidance and support to other people with the condition. The website also maintains a directory of support groups spread throughout Ontario.

The Arthritis Society:
Don’t let the name fool you. The Arthritis Society offers a wealth of information about a number of chronic medical conditions, including fibromyalgia. You can visit the website to find out more about pain management and treatment options, or call a local office to speak with someone who may be able to point you to other resources in your area.  

National Fibromyalgia Association:
For more than 20 years, the National Fibromyalgia Association has tried to educate people about fibromyalgia while working to improve the quality of life for those living with the condition. The organization was founded in California, but it is nevertheless an invaluable resource for those looking to find out more about fibromyalgia.

Canadian Women’s Health Network:
While fibromyalgia can affect anyone, women are far more likely to be diagnosed with the disorder. That’s why the Canadian Women’s Health Network maintains a handy FAQ and offers assistance to women with fibromyalgia.

National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association:
Like the National Fibromyalgia Association, the NFMCPA is an American organization that contains a trove of useful information related to fibromyalgia and chronic pain.
