Typically, a Fibromyalgia sufferer will experience a range of symptoms, but the common theme and perhaps most complained of symptom of Fibromyalgia is that of widespread pain throughout the body.
The condition is characterised by pain in the soft fibrous tissues of the body such as the muscles, tendons and ligaments often likened to flu like symptoms of widespread aching, but constant and unrelenting.
“Andrew, I feel so lucky to have found you. What a difference you made! Let’s face it, with [previous solicitors] the claim was heading for the rocks. Thank you so much.” TR (£265,000 received), October 2018
In addition to pain, our clients commonly report symptoms such as:
- Extreme sensitivity
- Poor (non-restorative) sleep
- Cognitive problems
- Irritable bowel syndrome
It is now widely accepted that Fibromyalgia is one of a number of conditions which result from central sensitisation. More information on this can be found via this link. With this in mind, we have noticed that many of our clients with Fibromyalgia are also suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
“My doctor diagnosed Fibromyalgia after my road accident but my last solicitors really didn’t take me seriously. I eventually contacted BLB and Bruce Dyer looked after me. Bruce really understands Fibromyalgia and got the top specialists on board. It was a fight but we won. I will always recommend Bruce and BLB.” AK (£375,000 recovered), June 2018
