The daughter of Bauchi State Governor, Fatima Zara Bala Mohammed, has revealed that she is living with Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), is a long-term chronic condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompained by fatigue, sleep, and cognitive difficulties.
Zara made the revelation during a question and answer session with her followers on Instagram.
She added that she is trying to create an awareness on the condition.
When asked if she’s living with fibromyalgia, she said, “Yes, I am. For the past 3 years. Yeah. I ‘m trying to create awareness. People need to understand what it is and how it affects your day to day…a lot of people actually dm me that they are living with Fibromyalgia but in silence because they feel others won’t understand or there’s so little knowledge about it.”
