Great article in the New York Times today about fibromyalgia.
My favorite parts:
"But other doctors — including the one who wrote the 1990 paper that defined fibromyalgia but who has since changed his mind — say that the disease does not exist and that Lyrica and the other drugs will be taken by millions of people who do not need them."And
“These people live under a cloud,” he said. “And the more they seem to be around the medical establishment, the sicker they get.”And
“Some of us in those days thought that we had actually identified a disease, which this clearly is not,” Dr. Wolfe said. “To make people ill, to give them an illness, was the wrong thing.”*giggle*
I don't even have to say anything. It's already been said.
