Toronto Fibromyalgia Support Group

Group Name: Toronto Fibromyalgia Support Group
Description: We are a group of people who have managed to live with Fibromyalgia and are interested in supporting other individuals who are learning how to deal with their Fibromyalgia symptoms. Our approach is to support people with Fibromyalgia in a friendly setting as they discover how to manage their symptoms.

To date Fibromyalgia is perhaps one of the most challenging chronic pain conditions actively under investigation in the world pain community. The most recent findings provide hope for better symptom control. The cause or causes of Fibromyalgia are still not known. Most research supports the hypothesis that Fibromyalgia is the result of changes in the central nervous system (Spinal Cord and Brain).
