Fibromyalgia Awareness Day may be a few months off (May 12! 2018), but you really should be raising awareness all year long — you can even start getting organized for a big event on Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.#

There are many ways that you can help to raise the profile of fibromyalgia including:

  • Getting on social media to share facts, stats, figures and life stories about fibromyalgia
  • Contacting Fibromyalgia Association UK with your story.
  • Hosting your own fibromyalgia awareness event to raise funds for research.
  • Donating to a fibromyalgia charity or non-profit organization.
  • Creating a Facebook page for locals with fibromyalgia.
  • Joining or hosting a local support group.
  • Printing out support posters and putting them up at your place of work/school/college
  • Wearing a fibromyalgia purple ribbon and talking to people about the disease when they ask why you’re wearing it.
  • Creating your own YouTube video to explain what it’s like to live with fibromyalgia.
  • Selling fibromyalgia wristbands to friends, neighbours, and colleagues.




  1. We are going to Blackpool for the annual Global Light up the Night event. Blackpool Tower will once again light up in purple with a blue heart to represent both FM/ME. We are a fibro charity who are committed to getting out there and raising awareness as much as possible. (Fibro Flare Awareness Group). We also publish a free online magazine (www.flaremag.uk) and of course run a Fb support group.
