Fibromyalgia Newsgroup

This newsgroup used to be linked to the mailing list Fibrom-L, but since October 1997 this arrangement has changed. It has always been a busy group - one of the most popular of the health-oriented newsgroups - and is likely to continue to be even with the splitting off of the mailing list. Members discuss symptoms and medications, share experiences and offer support to each other. The newsgroup is not moderated.
