Hi. I am a 34-year-old FM patient from Japan. Unfortunately, FM is still not commonly known in Japan, and only a limited number of doctors can examine it. In this environment, my widespread muscle pains, dry eye, dry mouth, easy bruising, breathing problems, etc. had been a mystery for 20 years. Last month I happened to come across a TV show that talked about FM and finally found its specialist I could visit. I received a diagnosis of FM a few days ago, and I have mixed feelings about it. It's good to have finally found out what was causing these health issues, but at the same time, it sucks to know that FM is a difficult disease to deal with, and it is poorly understood and doesn't get government's support.

I've started taking Lyrica. Hopefully it will help my pain.
