Inspired by Fake News About Fibromyalgia

This morning, during my social media scroll, I was inspired by the misinformation readily available and spreading to the chronically community about what is — and isn't — fibromyalgia. Out of respect to those safe spaces, I won't repeat the exact conspiracy theory that someone was persuaded to believe from rampant fake news on the internet. However, after seeing far too many posts from people with fibromyalgia debating about fibromyalgia, I've decided to make it my personal mission to dive even deeper into a scientific understanding of fibromyalgia syndrome and disseminate the findings, here, in a way that is easy to understand. I'll be researching and summarizing and also implementing recommended changes in my own lifestyle one action at a time — and reporting back.

The first article I'm going to discuss, tomorrow, is called Elevations of Ventricular Lactate Levels Occur in Both Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. How did I find this piece of research? It was presented via a website called Health Rising with the title, "Study Suggests 'Bad Energy' is Core Problem in Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). Said article presenting the research was posted in a comment thread on Facebook.
