Fibromyalgia Awareness Week is in full swing this week with lots of support groups around the UK wearing the Fibromyalga Associations trademark yellow and black ribbon and other clothes of the same colours. While it’s easy to pass by someone with the condition without realising it, it is impossible to miss their bold colours!.
In order to raise awareness of Fibromyalgia, an All Party Parliamentary Group has been set up to bring greater awareness and eduction of the illness and related problems associated with the condition. It also aims to encourage the NHS and other funding for new research projects.
Fibromyalgia 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.
