Fibro ringFibromyalgia Association UK is a registered charity administered by unpaid volunteers. The majority of volunteers are also fibromyalgia sufferers who work extremely hard, despite their condition, in order to forward the cause of fibromyalgia. FMA UK was established in order to provide information and support to sufferers and their families. In addition, the Association provides medical information for professionals and operates a national helpline.

In order to raise awareness of Fibromyalgia, an All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) has been set up to bring greater awareness and education of the illness and related problems associated with the condition. It also aims to encourage NHS and other funding for new research projects. At present there is very little research being carried out in the UK and sufferers are told there is no cure. So Fibromyalgia Awareness week is another way to raise its profile to help people suffering from this sometimes debilitating disease.


  1. That’s all good news, Bar :yes: I’m waiting to see if the last few weeks of stress and insomnia bring on another flare-up … 😦 … I do hope not … :no:


  2. Huge props for everyone who is working so hard to help further awareness for fibromyalgia. Even working with so many different medical professionals, it is shocking how widely misunderstood this medical condition still is. However, there has been some recent research at the University of Florida which has shown promise. I’m hopeful this will help bring in more funding for future projects.
