Fibromyalgia is a complex disease characterized by pain and fatigue. As of yet, there is no definitive medical test for the diagnosis of fibromyalgia, so diagnosis is made by eliminating other possible causes of symptoms.
Dr. Amy Stenehjem, a physician with chronic illness, created this website to help fill the void of reliable information for those struggling with health issues. She works as a Private Patient Advocate, using the knowledge she gained while working as a physician caring for those with chronic medical conditions, combined with that of a patient with chronic illness. Her experience, both as a physician and as a patient, provide her with a unique perspective. She is dedicated to using this insight to help others navigate the often-overwhelming world of illness.
