WANSBECK Disability Forum have helped set up a new support group for people with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).

FMS causes severe widespread pain and can include a number of symptoms, such as fatigue, sleep disturbance, joint stiffness, difficulty in swallowing, numbness and tingling and bowel and bladder abnormalities.

It can also be linked with psychological conditions, including depression and anxiety.

The Fibromyalgia Syndrome Support Group will be holding their first session on Wednesday, April 10, from 12.30pm to 2.20pm, at Trinity Church in Station Road, Ashington.

All new members welcome.
