To give it more visibility and achieve advances that effectively fight against fibromyalgia, World Fibromyalgia Day takes place every May 12. And with this reason, this Friday, FibroReal has installed in Ciudad Real several information tables and petitions, in the University General Hospital, Plaza Mayor and provincial council, with the aim also to raise awareness throughout the city of the serious consequences of this public health problem

In addition, at 11:30 am the reading of the manifesto took place in the Plaza Mayor. From the Association of Sick and Family of Sick Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue of Ciudad Real has claimed “respect” for a disease that “although it seems invisible changes lives” affected. It is a disease that causes the first symptoms between 30 and 40 years and that in 85 percent of cases affects women, although there are more and more men and boys diagnosed. It usually causes a generalized and chronic musculoskeletal pain that gradually affects all areas of life (work, social and family). The pain is such that most patients are forced to leave their jobs, which affects not only their economic situation but their psychological state.
