[June 6 note: The survey is now closed and the final tally will be announced soon. Sincere thanks to all who contributed.]
If you have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and you haven't contributed to this survey yet, please help break the 6,000-response barrier! So far, 5,850 people have helped build a blockbuster database that the world's doctors won't be able to ignore. But it would be great to make one last push and put it over the top.
The deadline is Tuesday, June 5, and the data, plus selected personal comments, will be used to construct a journal article on fibromyalgia's true impact.
Just complete this confidential online survey - the Fibromyalgia and Family Impact Survey - at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/fibromyalgiarelationship. It was created by HealthCentral FM & ME/CFS Health Guide Karen Lee Richards and Dawn Marcus, MD, a leading US fibromyalgia specialist, and responses are completely anonymous.
About the Fibromyalgia and Family Impact Survey
Anyone who lives with fibromyalgia knows only too well that it invades every part of your life, including the most personal areas – your relationships with your family and friends.
In an effort to better understand the impact fibromyalgia has on personal relationships, Dawn Marcus, M.D., Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Pittsburgh and author of the new book The Woman's Fibromyalgia Toolkit, is conducting a research study with individuals who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
We want to learn more about your fibromyalgia. By spending a few minutes on our survey, you will help us learn more information about fibromyalgia that can benefit people with fibromyalgia and healthcare professionals.
This survey is completely anonymous. Your responses cannot be matched to any personal information or identifiers. The survey consists of up to 40 multiple-choice questions and should take approximately 25 minutes to complete. Thank you for your participation!
