This quick (5-10 minute) survey from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, is obtaining information on the prevalence and nature of swallowing difficulties associated with fibromyalgia.  The results are intended to raise medical practitioners’ awareness of swallowing difficulties in fibromyalgia. Depending on the significance of this symptom as seen in the survey results, swallowing may become an important feature in diagnosis and management of fibromyalgia.  Please take the time to participate.
