Fibromyalgia Sufferers Seek State Support For Debilitating Condition
Sunday 24 February 2019
Fibromyalgia sufferers seek State support for debilitating condition
The syndrome, which causes pain and fatigue, affects up to 180,000 people in Ireland
“I don’t think I’ve ever gotten up without being in pain,” said Adrienne Dempsey, mother of singer/songwriter Damien Dempsey who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 15 years ago.
She was speaking at a press conference calling for State support for people with the condition, which causes widespread pain and fatigue.
The campaigners say there is a “misunderstanding” about the condition and are frustrated and disillusioned with the resources available.
They are also seeking the development of a multidisciplinary treatment plan and training for medical practitioners in how to deal with the disorder.
