Fibromyalgia May Affect As Many As One In 25 People In Northern Ireland
Monday 4 March 2019
From BBC News Northern Ireland:
Fibromyalgia may affect as many as one in 25 people in NI
About 4,500 people in Northern Ireland are receiving a Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for living with fibromyalgia - but as many as one in 25 people may actually be affected.
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body and it can be difficult to detect.
For almost a decade, nobody could tell Margaret McCully why she was in pain.
"It got to the point where I actually thought that I was going crazy, that these pains were in my head," she said.
"You get medication thrown at you and hope it takes the edge off it. There is nothing that will take the pain away."
Margaret was eventually diagnosed with fibromyalgia 15 years ago. She said it left her feeling very isolated.
