Roughly five million Americans live with fibromyalgia, a chronic disease with no standard treatment or cure that involves musculoskeletal pain. Shannon Lunn, Luther College junior of Farmington, Minnesota, is exploring experiences men have with fibromyalgia for her summer research project.

Lunn, the daughter of Lonny and Margaret Lunn of Farmington, is a 2016 graduate of Rosemount High School. She is majoring in nursing at Luther.

Lunn is working with Angela Kueny, Luther associate professor of nursing, on her project "Male Experiences with Fibromyalgia: A Focus Group Comparative Study." Other contributors include Loren Toussaint, Luther professor of psychology; Pilar Montesó-Curto, nursing professor from Rovira i Virgili University in Spain; and the Mayo Clinic Fibromyalgia Clinic.

It is most prevalent in women, with an estimated 75-90 percent of cases occurring in women. Because women typically are affected by fibromyalgia more often than men, men tend to be underrepresented both in research and treatment. Working with Rochester's Mayo Fibromyalgia Clinic, Lunn will hold focus groups with 10 current male fibromyalgia sufferers in an attempt to learn more about the symptoms. Lunn will compare her findings to a focus group that was held in Spain for cross-cultural considerations of fibromyalgia experiences.
