Website: Sutton FMCP Pop-in Club

Although based in Sutton, we cover the whole of Surrey. We are a support group – established in 2011 – and we see a lot of people with ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and chronic pain conditions. Common symptoms of fibromyalgia are:

  • Muscle pain and stiffness
  • Fatigue
  • Specific ‘tender points’
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Poor concentration
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Many people with ME/CFS and fibromyalgia struggle with the condition for years.  It often takes a conversation with someone or an article in the press to alert them to these conditions as a possible cause for their distressing symptoms.

Many medical professionals do not have the expertise to diagnose or treat people with fibromyalgia, but it is estimated that 2% (that is one in every 50) of the population are likely to develop this condition. It mainly affects women.

We are working to raise awareness of the condition within the community and particularly amongst the medical profession.
