On going project to document the fibromyalgia syndrome of my girlfriend Anita. Fibromyalgia syndrome is a common form of widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue (asthenia) that affects approximately less than 1% of the population. The term fibromyalgia means pain in muscles and fibrous connective structures (ligaments and tendons). The therapeutic options for fibromyalgia include medications, muscle stretching exercises, relaxation techniques (acupuncture).
