I have found no literature that covers men having FM and although that isn't a real issue it would be interesting to know if there are any destinct differences in symptoms between women and men who suffer FM.

I know that I suffer with the pain and especially the sensitivity to touch to the point that if my scarf gets caught between my jacket and my shoulder after a moment or two I'm in a lot of pain. But I haven't suffered with fatigue as badly as most have (when I do suffer from a bout of fatigue it tends to be dramatic but short lived).

I was wondering if pain was more of a factor with men or is it just as random as the rest of this illness.

Also as male body chemistry is a little different are there drug or treatments that work better or worse for men.

I don't begrudge that all the literature and research is aimed at women (as 90% of sufferer are women) but sometime it would be nice to be included.

The upside of the majority of sufferers being women is that the forum is much friendlier and more welcoming rather than a male dominated forum where most men try to act a bit tougher around each other. Because of that everyone is able to be a bit more open and get the support they need.

I don't like pain because it hurts.

I wish I was tough as my cat, she removed her own stiches and never complains of hurts or pains.
