Every morning before Ben Harris throws the bed covers off his aching body, his angels and demons go into battle.

"Just give up."

"I'm not giving up."

The angel always wins.

Harris's fibromyalgia gives him no reprieve from pain, whether it's a two or a 10 on the pain scale.

But he pushes through it with his "sheer pigheadedness".

"I can either be exhausted and in pain laying in bed or I can live my life. So I'll live my life."

Harris knew there was something wrong when his legs started to ache from standing or walking. Then, excruciating pain in his knees forced him to a doctor.

"The good news is we know what's wrong. Bad news is there's nothing we can do about it."

There's no known cure for fibromyalgia and no foolproof medication.
