“FM/a® is a multi-biomarker-based test which concerns immune system white blood chemokine and cytokine patterns. Patients with fibromyalgia have a significantly dysregulated pattern regarding these proteins.”
The FM/a® test gives me concrete objective evidence that I can share with all those on my healthcare team. No more questioning that my symptoms are due to a biological problem. If you have read Integrative Therapies for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myofascial Pain: The Mind-Body Connection, you know how important it is that I make sure all my doctors include the report in my medical records.
It is equally reassuring to know that I contributed to changing the way fibromyalgia is perceived.
In healing and hope, yours truly, Celeste
