A Year in Review: 2016’s Top Fibromyalgia Stories
As I reviewed headline after headline to compile this list of top fibromyalgia-related news stories from 2016, I became more and more frustrated. Another year has passed, and yet again we’ve learned little about fibromyalgia. We don’t know what causes it. There’s no widely accepted diagnostic test. We still don’t have any treatments that consistently work well for everyone. When coupled with the federal government’s crackdown on opioids and natural pain relievers, 2016 definitely wasn’t a year of progress for the fibromyalgia community.
On the bright side, we do have a few new medications in the works, and the discovery of a unique brain signature among fibromyalgia patients sounds promising. So, in no particular order, let’s take a few minutes to reflect back on some of last year’s top fibromyalgia-related headlines.
