Fibromyalgia Syndrome is a chronic pain syndrome characterised by widespread musculoskeletal aches, pain and stiffness, soft tissue tenderness, general fatigue and sleep disturbances. Fibromyalgia patients experience a range of symptoms of varying intensities that wax and wane over time. Within Northern Ireland, it is estimated up to 3% of the population potentially suffer from the condition.
Fibromyalgia Support N. Ireland (FMSNI) is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to providing help and support to Fibromyalgia sufferers and those who care for them. Our mission is to provide an organisation where those with FMS can find understanding, knowledge, support and practical help in fighting the disease.
Our aims are to:
Support those with FM, their carers, family and friends
To provide up to date information on the condition, research protocols and other relevant material
To inform all relevant parties of the difficulties and issues faced by those with FM.
FMSNI hope you will find this site useful and informative. We constantly endeavour update our information as frequently as possible.
