Fibromyalgia, a complex chronic pain disorder, has no cure but experts will gather in Warren, Michigan on May 10 to discuss more effective routes for managing fibromyalgia and reducing symptoms.

ROYAL OAK, Mich., April 30, 2014  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Fibromyalgia Association of Michigan (FAM) will host its 13th annual event at the Webber Cancer Center at St. John Macomb-Oakland Hospital on 11800 12 Mile Road from 12:30 - 5:30 PM. People who have been diagnosed with or suspect that they have fibromyalgia or chronic pain, and loved ones of people with these illnesses are encouraged to attend. Additionally, healthcare providers who would like to learn new ways to help their patients will find the event beneficial. Tickets and details including lodging are online at Early bird registration is $10 and ends May 4. After May 4 and at the door tickets are $15.

The event is part of a steadily growing worldwide movement to bring attention to the misunderstood illness in May. "Fibromyalgia is still not being taught in medical schools," said Sharon Waldrop, President & Founder of FAM. More than ten million Americans suffer from fibromyalgia, and yet it takes patients on average five years to get diagnosed and begin treatment according to the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association. Early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent permanent changes in how the body perceives pain. "I was diagnosed early," said Waldrop, "but due to poor treatment, I wound up bed-ridden at the age of 24."

New information will be presented by Dr. Hal Blatman MD, Past President of the American Holistic Medical Association, regarding the impact of diet on pain and fatigue, which are two primary symptoms of fibromyalgia. Whole Foods, an event sponsor, will provide snacks that are fibromyalgia-friendly. Three individuals affected by fibromyalgia from the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association's Leaders Against Pain Network will share coping tips for daily living and how to keep your marriage strong despite the illness. Michigan Senator Steve Bieda of Macomb County will present a Tribute on behalf of the Michigan Senate recognizing Fibromyalgia Awareness Day in Michigan.

The Fibromyalgia Association of Michigan (FAM) is a non-profit organization run by individuals with fibromyalgia, for people with fibromyalgia. FAM is committed to improving the quality of life for people affected by fibromyalgia in Michigan by providing support, education, and advocacy.
