WARNING - THIS PRODUCTION CONTAINS SOME STRONG LANGUAGE WHICH MAY OFFEND

Fibromyalgia is a chronic health condition, the main symptoms of which include widespread pain, profound fatigue, cognitive dysfunction & IBS. The pain tends to be felt as diffuse aching or burning, often described as head to toe. It may be worse at some times than at others. It may also change location, usually becoming more severe in parts of the body that are used most.

The fatigue ranges from feeling tired, to the exhaustion of a flu-like illness. It may come and go and people can suddenly feel drained of all energy – as if someone just “pulled the plug”.

Fibromyalgia is a common illness. In fact, it is more common than rheumatoid arthritis and can even be more painful. Prevalence of Fibromyalgia: A Survey in Five European Countries (see www.fmauk.org/prevalence for details) put the prevalence of FM at between 2.9 and 4.7%. People with mild to moderate cases of fibromyalgia are usually able to live a normal life, given the appropriate treatment.

If symptoms are severe, however, people may not be able to hold down a paying job or enjoy much of a social life.

The name fibromyalgia is made up from “fibro” for fibrous tissues such as tendons and ligaments; “my” indicating muscles; and “algia” meaning pain.

Further information on fibromyaliga is available from www.fmauk.org

Fibromyalgia Paisley & Inverclyde Network (Fibro PaIN) is a local support group; providing support and information to people with fibromyalgia in Renfrewshire, Inverclyde & surrounding areas. Monthly meetings are held in Paisley & Greenock, and there is an active closed facebook group.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Invisible - One Woman’s Fight with Fibromyalgia are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
