Florence Nightingale


Florence Nightingale documented her own struggle with what was likely fibromyalgia through personal notes and discoveries of health conditions and dietary information about her patients. She was a nurse during the Crimean War, tending to the injured or ill. In 1858, she published a book entitled Notes on Matters Affecting the Health, Efficiency and Hospital Administration of the British Army. By 1910, she was bedridden, and at age 90, she passed in her sleep.
