Default Famous people with fibro

In my research to help hubby with his diagnosis, I've learned a bit about celebrities or famous names that are battling fibro.

The biggest name to me was Morgan Freeman - and this helped my husband a lot, as many of the support things we had seen thus far had been women-oriented.

The actress Susan Flannery, and the singer Sinead O'Connor were a couple of other names I recognized when learning more about fibromyalgia.

Do you know of any celebrities or well known people that are suffering fibromyalgia?

I had no idea that Morgan Freeman had Fibromyalgia! I've actually never looked into this before, but it would be really interesting to find out more celebs with it.

There was a very famous porn star .who I learned on a YouTube of famous ppl with fibro .thinks her job started hers.i did have to giggle abit at that.
But all joking aside .it seems to me the more active ppl are ,the more they get fibro.
