Many physicians view fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome with suspicion. Doctors often don’t know how to treat these problems and help patients feel better. Instead, they may consider people with these debilitating conditions to be suffering from psychosomatic ailments.

According to the CDC, as many as 1 million Americans have chronic fatigue syndrome. Experts estimate that more than 3 million people have fibromyalgia. Their suffering is real. What can be done to alleviate it?

I have been fighting Fibromyalgia at its worse the last 2 1/2 years. It is concentrated in my forearms and I have been unable to work due to my limitations. I also had extracorpeal shock wave to my elbows prior to being diagnosed with FMS. I wish someone could suggest something that could help me work again. Keyboard work is very hard to do, and most jobs require some type of keyboard work. I tried being retrained for medical assisting, but can't get a job since I am told I have no experience. Could use any advice. Distraught and want to work.
