The National Fibromyalgia Association, MDJunction, ProHealth, FibroTalk and Daily Strength offer online fibromyalgia support groups, reports Healthline. These groups help fibromyalgia patients cope with the physical and emotional effects of the disease.
The NFA maintains an online directory of other support groups and provides guidelines for starting new groups. MDJunction enables online interactions among members through group discussions and individual chats. It is a very active online support group. ProHealth provides message boards and chat rooms, and enables users to search for in-person fibromyalgia support groups, notes Healthline.
In addition to chat rooms and support forums, FibroTalk features diaries and blogs written by fibromyalgia patients. Daily Strength has wellness journals for patients to track their symptoms and progress, says Healthline.
