Des opened the meeting, and welcomed the new members.   Leaflets, handouts and books were made available for members to have a look at/take away, including the ARC booklet on Sjogrens Syndrome, which some people with fibromyalgia also suffer from.

Discussion took place on research into fibromyalgia, and Des spoke of work that has been done in Liverpool using functional MRI scans to look at levels of brain activity, similar to research done previously in the states. Discussion also took place on accessibility of medication through GP’s.

Phil asked what happens next after you are discharged from Pain Clinic?   Next step would be to return to your GP and ask for further help.   It may be helpful to refer them to the EULAR Recommendations if they are unsure what other help/medications may be used.   Strong opioids are not recommended for use with fibromyalgia, even though many people are prescribed these.
