I have had fibromyalgia symptoms for more than half my life and I am 56. What a relief it was to realize this is my wacky brain trying to distract me from feelings. I read the Sarno book on back pain a few weeks ago and found this site about a week ago. I've been doing the Pain Recovery Program for the last week and I am noticing that my pain in my neck, shoulders and arms has increased. That shows me I am on to it and I've just got to keep at this. I am so grateful to have found this!
