Copied from website altnet - "8 invented diseases Big Pharma is banking on…"

"8. "Spectrum" Disorders

Nothing proves pharma's when-the-medication-is-ready credo better than the legions of people who have fibromyaglia now that Cymbalta, Savella and Lyrica are available to treat it. Still, a "GRASSROOTS" PHARMA FRONT GROUP IS CONDUCTING A FIBROMYALGIA IS REAL AWARENESS CAMPAIGN LIKE IT DID FOR DEPRESSION AND BIPOLAR DISORDER, JUST TO MAKE SURE.

PHARMA HAS ALSO ROLLED OUT THE TERM "DEPRESSION SPECTRUM DISORDER" FOR FIBROMYALGIA TO MAKE SURE PATIENTS WHO HAVE SOME BUT NOT ALL OF THE SYMPTOMS SEEK TREATMENT.

And speaking of spectrums, "Epilepsy Spectrum Disorder" was rolled out in January's JAMA -- a disorder which is not just about seizures anymore but has "shared mechanisms" with "depression, autism.., and other cognitive comorbidities." Spectrum disorders are Real--which is pharma for Reimbursable."


Caps are my emphasis…. oh really?? Fibromyalgia is real, but it is just a disease of depression??????
Which makes me wonder… who IS behind the campaign? This article insinuates it is the drug companies who sell the meds that made ME (and many others) really sick. I believe I have pain and sleep problems and used to be depressed - all improved on a gluten free diet - and different meds than the 3 "approved" meds. Hmmmm.
