Fibro: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 04, 2016

Below the surface, living with fibro can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to fibromyalgia than meets the eye. We know that fibromyalgia comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On, the social network and online support group for people living with fibromyalgia, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. MyFibroTeam has grown to reach 200,000 members and members have shared over 10 million conversations about life with fibro! Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyFibroTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent fibro symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a fibro diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread fibro awareness!

This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
