Glasgow artist giving insight into chronic illness suffered by Lady Gaga
IT is an illness with no known cause, no known cure and which very few people know about.
But for Amy Rosa, a diagnosis of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) came as a relief.
The 31-year-old had been suffering from a varied collection of illnesses over a long period and was desperate to find answers.
Although there is no set treatment for FMS, the diagnosis meant she was finally being believed that her symptoms are real.
Amy said: "GPs aren't always trained in the symptoms of chronic illness, they aren't always good at looking at overall patterns and tend to treat each separate ailment individually.
"It was difficult for my doctor because I was presenting with so many different symptoms but ended up having quite a good relationship because it was such a long journey to diagnosis.
"There was a relief to having a diagnosis because it meant I was being believed that there was something really wrong."
FMS has recently been in the headlines due to two celebrities speaking out about the conditions.
