    what is 'normal' ....

    I am almost 40. And it is only now that I am beginning to learn that many body aches and pains I thought were 'normal' are not normal whatsoever.

    famous TV doctor denies fibromyalgia to exist

    Ok, I will have to cool you down before I go any further - this is not a famous TV doctor in the States, the UK or anywhere in Europe. Thankfully I suppose... I won't mention where, but it is in the country where I live and this is so so so frustrating. How dare he???!!! The majority of the...
