Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition of widespread pain and profound fatigue. 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 the 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".
FMA UK operates as a signpost to information and resource for people who are affected by fibromyalgia. From our initial beginnings we have seen the range of services and resources increase. What we can offer is closely tied to the level of donations we receive and other funding sources.
