Understanding

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition of widespread pain, fatigue and loss of restorative sleep. Other symptoms can include IBS, short term memory lapses, confusion, headaches, skin sensations/sensitivity, eye and jaw problems, and loss of balance. Many sufferers have the symptoms for months and even years, before being correctly diagnosed.

Recognizing

Fibromyalgia Syndrome was recognized by the World Health Organisation during a consensus conference in Copenhagen between 17th and 20th August 1992. FMS is also recognized by the various benefits agencies and there have been successful instances of sufferers claiming long-term medical insurance payments and pensions.

Helping

Fibromyalgia Action UK, a registered charity administered by Trustees, offers information and support to sufferers and carers, as well as co-ordinating 100 local groups throughout the UK, including Northern Ireland and Guernsey. The Wight Fibro Group is proud to be working with them to provide support on the Isle of Wight.

Come and join us at the Busy Bee!

Formal meetings still aren’t possible due to Covid, sadly. But we are now having our informal Coffee’n’Cake Afternoons at 2:00 pm every 2nd Tuesday and 4th Wednesday of each month.

These are at the Olive Tree restaurant in the Busy Bee Garden Centre in Ryde.

Why not come and join us? There’s always a friendly welcome for you, great company, and the cakes are fantastic. It will be really good to see you.
