Many people with fibromyalgia have expressed concern that they may be more susceptible to a Corona virus/Covid-19 infection. We at EpicGenetics are working to determine whether or not that is true. We have begun polling those who have had their diagnosis of fibromyalgia confirmed via the FM/a® Test as to whether they have been diagnosed with a Covid-19 infection and/or they have the symptoms of such an infection, including fevers, coughing, tiredness and respiratory distress.
It is true that patients with fibromyalgia have some indications of immune system deficiencies, per our peer-reviewed and published research. Therefore, we ask anyone with a positive FM/a® Test score to 1) take precautions and isolate themselves, per the WHO and CDC guidelines, and 2) notify us at EpicGenetics if they develop and/or are diagnosed with a Covid-19 infection. That information will help us determine any potential increased risks for fibromyalgia patients regarding the Covid-19 virus.
Please protect yourself, your families and your friends. This is a very serious medical pandemic. Be assured that we at EpicGenetics want to help and are working hard to do so any way that we can.
