It is estimated that 6 million people in the United States suffer from fibromyalgia, and it is believed that the condition may affect one in 50 Americans. A new study has examined the prevalence of the disorder in the general population by comparing criteria from several years. The researchers have found that changes to the American College of Rheumatology criteria have led to a rise in the prevalence of fibromyalgia, and the number of men being diagnosed with the condition is rising.
