It’s often been said that some GP’s are not as sympathetic as others towards a sufferer of Fibromyalgia, in fact some still feel ‘it’s all in your head’.

So, it’s nice to see that the NHS have a dedicated page about Fibromyalgia http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Fibromyalgia/Pages/Introduction.aspx with details on diagnosis, symptoms, causes, treatments and self help with useful links on the same page.

It also has ‘a patient’s story’ link and asks you to write to them with your Fibromyalgia story and diagnosis.

For many un-diagnosed Fibro sufferers this will be’ just what the Doctor ordered’ (as they say).


  1. It’s unbelievable that more than a million people in the UK suffer from fibromyalgia and yet many still can’t get the healthcare system to take them seriously. Just a mention for a new vitamin D based capsule called Zivadol which is available for FIbromyalgia. This isn’t a spam comment, although I work for the company that makes Zivadol, most fibro sufferers find us a friendly company and we are trying to help. There is a blog section on our webpage http://www.zivadol.com about latest research on fibro as well. Zivadol was designed with the help of fibromyalgia patients, so if you have any suggestions let us know.
