TEANECK, N. J. -- A nurse practitioner is the featured speaker at a free information event Thursday at Holy Name Medical Center about recognizing the signs, including frequent tiredness, of the chronic pain condition fibromyalgia.
Judith Kutzleb, vice president of Advance Practice Professionals, addresses some of the common symptoms of fibromyalgia that also include joint stiffness and sleep disturbances. The event starts at 6:30 p.m., Sept. 29, in Marian Hall at the medical center, 718 Teaneck Road, Teaneck.
Hospital officials say women are seven times more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men, and often go undiagnosed. The condition affects an estimated 2 to 5 percent of the population, officials said.
