Fibromyalgia Association of Sweden
On the 7-9th of September we attended “Future Specialist Doctors”, Sweden’s biggest congress for future specialists. This is an important forum were we can spread information on fibromyalgia in order to raise awareness of the condition. This year our new folder “Describe Your Pain” was very much appreciated. Many general practitioners stopped by our exhibition stand to talk to us, and we had several good conversations. Many doctors felt powerless in dealing with FM patients, and wanted to know what they could do for our patient group.
We also encouraged doctors to recommend their patients to join a local fibromyalgia association. The psychological burden of dealing and living with fibromyalgia is often relieved when you meet others that are in the same situation.
