About Fibromyalgia Association UK
The Fibromyalgia Association UK is an international, voluntary organization in the United Kingdom dedicated to providing information, support, and resources to individuals affected by fibromyalgia, a chronic condition characterized by musculoskeletal pain, stiffness, and spasm and associated sleep disturbances. The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown. However, the condition appears to develop after certain infections or injuries, or may occur due to, or in association with, other underlying conditions or disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis. The Fibromyalgia Association UK provides understandable information on fibromyalgia and promotes networking opportunities that enable affected individuals and family members to exchange mutual support and information. The association also has a web site on the Internet that discusses the organization’s history and mission, provides information on fibromyalgia, and offers linkage to additional support groups, newsgroups, FAQs (“frequently asked questions”) on the condition, and related web sites.
