Fibromyalgia imitates…

Lupus; rashes, fatigue, joint pain, headaches, swollen glands…but it’s not!

Multiple Sclerosis (MS); fatigue, pain, numbness, tingling, muscles spasms, weakness, bladder problems, bowel problems, depression and anxiety…but its not!

Rheumatoid Arthritis; swollen joints, pain, stiffness…but it’s not!

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) aka Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS); anything from slight reduction in daily mobility to complete immobility and inability to carry out any daily task no matter how simple…but it’s not that either!

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); abdominal pain, cramping, constipation, diarrhoea, incontinence, lethargy, nauseous, vomiting, back pain…but it’s not that either…

…but yet it is all of these things, but none of them depending on what it feels like being, it is indeed the Great Imitator…a chameleon.
