An interesting article on Fibromyalgia and from a newspaper known to be Tory?! I quite simply do not believe it!! LMAO!
‘Often GPs treat patients’ symptoms separately, rather than looking at them as a group and realising they indicate fibromyalgia. And because these symptoms aren’t life-threatening and the patient isn’t turning green, they are seen as a malingerer.’
‘It’s a vicious circle; severe pain causes insomnia which in turn denies the body the chance to heal properly.’
Living with the pain was something that Maria was not prepared to do.‘I found a quote on a fibromyalgia forum that said you need to attack the condition head-on,’ she says. ‘So after consulting my GP, I cut out wheat, alcohol, dairy products, potatoes and refined sugars - anything that I found made my pain worse.’
