Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

FibroMates – Fibromyalgia support group

Coronavirus – changes to our group

Unfortunately it’s impossible to say when we’ll be meeting up again as of August 2020 due to the coronavirus situation.

Free Sunflower Lanyard (not directly connected to FibroMates but may be useful to people with hidden disabilities.)

Not all people with hidden disabilities require assistance. But if you do, wearing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard discreetly indicates that you need additional support or just a little more time. Don’t be hidden in plain sight.

Sunflower lanyards are available in places like M&S, Sainsbury, Tesco, Argos, Banks, Airports etc…  Just ask at the Customer Service desk or at the checkouts. The lanyards are free and you don’t need to provide proof of a disability. See

Support group for people affected by Fibromyalgia.

What is Fibromyalgia? 

Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body. As well as widespread pain, people with fibromyalgia may also have other symptoms such as extreme tiredness, muscle stiffness and problems with memory and concentration.

We are here for people either suffering from Fibromyalgia, going through the process of being diagnosed, or a family member / friend who is supporting someone with the condition.

The group usually meets once a month.
