Authors of the fibromyalgia.zone internet service would like to make fibromyalgia more familiar to our readers. Fibromyalgia remains still barely known. However, is not so rare. According to the American Chronic Pain Society, fibromyalgia syndrome is one of the most common chronic pain conditions in the world.
The NHS estimates that 2 – 4.5% of people in the UK may have fibromyalgia syndrome – based on a UK population* of 66,5 millions and this would mean that between 1.3 million and 3.0 million people in the UK would have fibromyalgia syndrome. However, one should bear in mind that this is just an estimate, and is based on the prevalence in the USA.
