Chiltern Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS Support Group
Contact: Teresa Williams, coordinator.
Telephone: 0844 887 2464 or 01582 873 297
Covering the areas of Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. From Tring, Hemel Hempstead, Uxbridge, Slough and High Wycombe.
The group aims to support people with fibromyalgia and CFS/ME and their family's and friend's. We try to run a positive group to share our ideas and concerns on how to cope with the syndromes. We try and keep up-to-date with the latest and tested treatments, so we don't waste our money on inappropriate treatments. We know it is not easy living with constant pain and fatigue, especially as we often don’t look unwell and family, friends and doctors sometimes have very little sympathy for us.
Meeting times: Monthly usually the 3rd Monday of the month. Bi-monthly at 1.30 p.m. in Seer Green, Bucks UK. Socials at other venues. The group is currently run by Teresa Williams. Linda Horncastle is now on the Medical Advisory Board for the national charity FMA UK.
