Question: Fibromyalgia Stage Three

 lin123 - Thu Jun 03, 2004 10:39 pm

I went to my FM Doctor today and he said I had Fibromyalgia Stage Three. I was wondering what this meant? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

User avatar lin,
Im sorry i havent heard that terminology before. Maybe he is referring to the cause of fibromyalgia, in this case, being a disturbance in stage 3 sleep.

Please refer to our fibromyalgia page.
