First off.. Merry Christmas! I hope Santa brings everyone a pain free life! That is what I asked for. :0)
I just wanted to share some good news for people with Myofascial Pain Syndrome. It is no longer a syndrome! YAY!
I copied this from a website by Devin Starlanyl the Author of:
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain: A Survival Manual 2nd Edition
and The Fibromyalgia Advocate: Getting the Support You Need to Cope with Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain Syndrome.
She states "The term Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) will no longer be used, as current research shows it is not a syndrome but a true myopathy, and thus a true disease."
YIPPIE! Now maybe this will help people finally believe us and help with disability!
Merry Christmas everyone!
