Story

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a medical condition characterised by chronic widespread pain and a heightened pain response to pressure.[3] Other symptoms include tiredness to a degree that normal activities are affected, sleep problems and troubles with memory.[4] Some people also report restless legs syndrome, bowel or bladder problems, numbness and tingling and sensitivity to noise, lights or temperature.[5] Fibromyalgia is frequently associated with depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder.[4] Other types of chronic pain are also frequently present.[4]

The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown; however, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors, with each playing a substantial role.[4][5] The condition runs in families, and many genes are believed to be involved.[8] Environmental factors may include psychological stress, trauma and certain infections.[4] The pain appears to result from processes in the central nervous system, and the condition is referred to as a "central sensitization syndrome".[3][4] Fibromyalgia is recognized as a disorder by the US National Institutes of Health and the American College of Rheumatology.[5][9] There is no specific diagnostic test.[5] Diagnosis involves first ruling out other potential causes and verifying that a set number of symptoms are present.

As some of you on my friends list will know somedays are worse than others. I have a friend who 3 out if 4 days is bedridden due to not being able to even walk. I am trying to raise whatever money i can to help towarfd the wheelchair she so desperately needs. Anything you can spare will help to literally put her life back on the road.

Thank you in advance to anyone that has donated.

If you can help in other ways ie an old unused wherlchair or other mobility aids plus feel free to get in touch.
