Story

I have a close connection to a loved one with fibromyalgia. Seeing the struggles and suffering on a day to day basis, then seeing them hiding this to the best of their ability, is the reason I personally want to raise awareness.

I want to help people understand the struggles that sufferers live with. Also, any help towards researching a cure for this awful condition, is fantastic.

Fibromyalgia is a recognised chronic condition of widespread pain and profound fatigue. A common illness with an estimated prevalence of 2.9% - 4.7%. The pain tends to be felt as aching or burning, often described as head to toe. It may be worse at some times than at others and may also change location, usually becoming more severe in parts of the body that are used most. Symptoms often include: exhaustion, poor sleep, headaches, irritable bowel, cognitive disturbances, clumsiness, dizziness, allergies, sensitivity to environmental changes.

The close connection is my Mum.

I am doing this for her, with the help of a close friend.
