What is Fibromyalgia?

Also known as FM or Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS)

Fibromyalgia is a relatively common and disabling long-term pain condition that is estimated to affect 2% of the population. It is characterised by widespread pain, fatigue, unrefreshing and poor sleep, “fibro-fog” (cognitive problems), mood issues, problems with stimuli and a range of other symptoms.
