Current Stats For Fibromyalgia

Current Stats For Fibromyalgia

The CDC says that 2% of Americans have fibromyalgia. Other Internet fibro website’s suggest that anywhere from 2% to 4% of Americans have fibromyalgia. Most fibro sites agree that eight out of ten American diagnosed with fibromyalgia of female. Therefore, two out of ten are men, or 80% of all diagnosed fibro patients, 20% are men.

When I looked up how many Americans had Fibromyalgia and specifically how many men had fibro. All I found was out of date information.

One example of out of date information on fibromyalgia was on the CDC website. It said “The prevalence of fibromyalgia is about 2%, affecting an estimated 5.0 million adults in 2005.”
