Disaboom, the leading online community designed for people touched by disabilities, today announced the expansion of its health conditions section to include more comprehensive coverage of fibromyalgia, a disability that affects 7 to 10 million Americans, according to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Disease. The newly expanded section offers detailed information on symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis for fibromyalgia.
"Little is known about what causes fibromyalgia, making it one of the most frustrating disorders," said Dr. Glen House, founder of Disaboom. "To help people live the best life they can with fibromyalgia, we have created a more comprehensive resource center and a community forum on the subject so people can offer each other advice and support."

In addition, visitors can get advice on medication, rehabilitation and commonly misdiagnosed conditions that resemble fibromyalgia.
