The Fibromyalgia Paisley and Inverclyde Network (Fibro PaIN) holds meetings in Paisley & Greenock.  The groups share support tips and what has been happening in the world of fibromyalgia as well as talking about what the group will do in coming months.  Tea, Coffee, biscuts and an understanding ear are the norm however, some months we have speakers  to give us some information on various topics related to fibromyalgia and living with a chronic health condition.
