City Hall clock tower to light up for International Fibromyalgia Day

By The Mississauga News

MISSISSAUGA – Fibromyalgia is a word many hear, but few understand.

It's a condition of chronic debilitating muscle pain throughout the body and those living with it experience symptoms such as fatigue, stiffness, weakness and palpitations.

And, since there are no visible signs of the illness, those around an individual living with the condition might not believe that anything is really wrong, or that it's all in the person's head.

In order to bring attention to the often misunderstood condition, the City of Mississauga will be joining various places across the globe that will be lit up in purple, blue or green to mark International Fibromyalgia Day on Tuesday (May 12).

A portion of the City Hall clock tower will be lit up green from 8 to 11 p.m. to spread awareness of not only fibromyalgia, but also myalgic encephalomyelitis (also known as chronic fatigue syndrome) and multiple chemical sensitivities.

Other participating landmarks include Niagara Falls, which will be lit up in blue, and the CN Tower, which will be illuminated in all three official colours.

According to the Arthritis Society, fibromyalgia affects about two per cent of Canadians and is mostly seen in women age 40 and older.

The Mississauga fibromyalgia support group has 250 members. [The group on Facebook.] Those interested can email Susan Monaco at fibromississauga@hotmail.com.
