How Do Respond To People Who Ask Your Diagnosis But Have No Clue As To What It Is?

When people ask me what's going on with my health, I now tell them I have Fibromyalgia OH, because when I say fibromyalgia, they say, 'OH'

I will tell them that it is a pain disorder where my brain is on overload from the pain signals.

No one understands us. They always say you look good. It is only the people that are going through all this fibro pain and everything that goes along with it, that understands!

Yeah, whenever I tell someone that I have, they just ask what it is. I'm like, oh lord. Look it up. It's so hard to explain sometimes so I sum it up with the body pains, fatigue and stuff like that

When people ask me what is fibromylgia, I tell them goggle it and your question will be answered. A lot of people don't have a clue about this disease. I know a few of my friends experienced the same symptoms but refused to see a doctor.
