Since being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia I love reading and absorbing anything I can that will teach me about this invisible disease. I found an absolute gem of a video presentation. It's a little over an hour but WELL WORTH THE TIME. It keeps your interest especially on days where following anything is a little tough.

Dr. Sean Mackey, assistant professor of anesthesia, at the Stanford University Medical Center gives a detailed presentation on Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain. 

He talks about the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, treatments, alternative studies and the latest research. It's really informative and a wonderful presentation! It is a great video for friends or family who don't quite understand what is going on in your body. He knows a great deal about this disease and he presents this information in  a positive manner.

He hits you right away with the heightened sensitization of pain transmitters and believes that Fibromyalgia may very well be a central nervous system condition.

I promise you'll find this very enlightening and informative.

Here's the link to the video presentation.
