Hi everyone! I want to bring your attentions to another charity shoutout that an old friend of mine’s brother is taking part in. This one is looking at aiming to make a difference to those who suffer from Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is probably something that most people haven’t heard of, unless they are in the medical profession or have family that suffer from it, or indeed suffer from it themselves. It’s a condition that causes widespread pain throughout the body and a heightened and painful response to pressure. At this moment in time we don’t know the cause of Fibromyalgia but it is believed to involve psychological, genetic, neurobiological and environmental factors.
This condition is a lot more common than you might think, in fact it is more common than rheumatoid arthritis, and can be considerably more painful. It’s prevalence is believed to be between 2.9 and 4.7% according to A Survey in Five European Countries.

Together we can find the cause of this wretched condition and improve the care and conditions of those who suffer from it, so get donating!
