A few members have referenced a movie/documentary on Netflix about fibromyalgia, does anyone know the title?
Hello straw34; I found Unrest to be very interesting and have learned that we are fortunate to not live in Denmark. You will understand once you watch it. The movie others are talking about may be Unrest because it does refer to invisible illnesses as a whole. I was saying that it was not the Lady Gaga movie. I also watched a series called afflicted and that showed the struggles of people trying to obtain a diagnosis, proper treatment, the financial burden and dealing with people who say it's all in our heads. Very interesting!
There is a movie called”Beating fibromyalgia” by Tim Weeks. A
Docudrama by Ben Fisher.
The video is very interesting.
I actually spent three weeks on the Big Island of Hawaii at a health retreat. It was with the same crew that shot the video. There was some very helpful information, but it did not solve all our problems.
I just read that you said it's not the movie "Unrest" yet that's the only one I've heard about recently in connection to fibromyalgia but you said it is about CFS. Would you recommend viewing unrest since you've seen it?
I think CFS and fibromyalgia are the same things personally. I personally believe that they are both variants of the same cause.
Afflicted is a series that I found interesting; I actually learned new things and they reaffirmed things I had previously read. Unrest was an informative documentary, too. I started watching The Magic Pill last night but I fell asleep; I intend to finish it soon.
