Imagine getting up in the morning and feeling like you have not slept at all and when your entire body hurts. Imagine walking around all day with these pains, not understanding where they came from at all, that your whole environment does not understand or even know your constant pain and fatigue. That even the doctor may not believe what you describe or do not know how to help you and to whom to refer you.
This description is of life with Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease characterized by extensive musculoskeletal pain, accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood. Fibromyalgia is estimated to affect 6-3% of the general population with 90-75% of them being women. The processes that patients must undergo to get a diagnosis and treatment that suits them can take years. In addition, many patients must deal with bureaucracy and mistrust on the part of doctors and the environment, in addition to a lack of information and understanding of all the processes that must go through. My InfoFibro project is a website designed to help patients understand the processes they need to go through until the best treatment arrives for them. The InfoFibro website is built and designed to make this information accessible, support and help patients with the processes they need to go through.
