Fibromyalgia comic goes bilingual

The worldwide success of a University of Dundee comic raising awareness of a common but poorly understood medical condition has led to a Spanish version of the publication being launched.

Fibromyalgia and Us: Living with Fibromyalgia’, created by writers, artists and health professionals from the University and NHS Tayside, in conjunction with those living with the condition, has been downloaded around 13,000 times since it was published in December 2017. Two thousand paper copies are also in circulation.

The comic explores the long-term condition which can often cause intense pain and/or fatigue all over the body and the impact it can have on individual patients and their families.

The Spanish version, ‘La Fibromialgia y nosotros: Vivir con Fibromialgia’, was created in order to increase the impact that the comic has around the globe, according to Divya Jindal-Snape, Professor of Education, Inclusion and Life Transitions at the University.

She said, “Since the comic was first published, we have had a lot of interest from around the world and people were asking whether it would be available in another language. When we received funding to produce a new version I conducted a poll on Twitter to see which language would be most popular and Spanish was the clear winner.”
