The medical experts of Second Opinion discuss fibromyalgia.

Second Opinion, WXXI's national health care series that presents actual medical cases to a panel of experts to debate the pros and cons of diagnostic testing, interpret test results, and prescribe the best course of action, looks at Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia describes a condition of widespread pain throughout the body.  Hard to diagnose, and even harder to treat, Fibromyalgia often leaves both patients and doctors frustrated. The Fibromyalgia episode airs Thursday, September 3, 2015 at 8:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Hosted by Dr. Peter Salgo Second Opinion is produced by WXXI, the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), and West 175 Productions. Blue Cross Blue Shield Association nationally underwrites the series.
