I currently have a Physical Therapy Student from West Virginia University doing her last clinical rotation before graduating in May. She will be writing a few blog posts. Here is her first.
Online social networks become more and more popular each day. People of all ages can talk with old friends or meet new people through the World Wide Web. The internet can also be a good resource to learn new things and gather information about health topics- if you know where to look.
For people who live with issues of fibromyalgia, one of these resources is www.myfibro.com
This web site provides information including resources about fibromyalgia, treatment options, videos, and a blog page. It provides some good basic information as well as an overview of the condition and pertinent research topics.
There are also interactive aspects of this website. There is a page called "Ask a Question". Registered users may ask a question or answer another user's question. The blog page allows you to share your information with other bloggers. Some people describe their daily routine. They also share recipes, exercise routines, books, and current research findings. It is nice to know someone may experience the same things as you in a typical day. Remember to always talk with your physician before making any changes to your personal health routine.
