In brief: Depends

? how woman w. fibromyalgia (FM) will fare in time.
Absent dedicated efforts, FM sufferers oft incur increased symptomatic decline & inactivity. Chronic pain from weakened & stressed soft tissues incites greater weakness, stress & pain as FM begets itself. The downward spiral must be reversed by aquatherapy, walks, massages, gentle yoga, mindfulness therapies & medicinal cannabis for sleep & pain.
