The Psychosocial Disease? – Has Fibromyalgia Been Captured by a Mind/Body Paradigm?

Behavioral and mind/body studies have pervaded fibromyalgia research for quite some time. A recent apparent uptick in these studies prompted a survey to determine how much of a second fiddle biological research is playing to behavioral research in FM right now.

A further inquiry suggested that large differences between the ME/CFS and FM communities could explain why one community is feeling more hopeful than the other right now.
