Fibromyalgia Research

Hi guys, I have been asked to place this post relating to Fibro research for anybody who would like to participate:

Hello,

My name is Hannah and I’m currently doing a PhD looking at the role of emotional suppression in medically unexplained disorders. I’m currently looking for people with fibromyalgia from the UK to take part in a brief online questionnaire study. This will involve participants anonymously answering some questions about how their fibromyalgia affects their life, what they think about their emotions and how they respond to certain emotions and who they go to for support. This research will help us better understand factors that can help or hinder living with fibromyalgia and may influence how treatments and psychological support are provided in the future.

I would be really grateful if you could please share the link to my research (below) on your website or through social media in the hopes that some of your followers may like to take part.

Many thanks and kind regards,

  • Hi Ken,

    I completed this a while back also, but if you have any communication with Hannah maybe you could let her know that she may find that some people with fibromyalgia will struggle to complete it because some of the questions are very long (I had to read some of them several times before I could grasp what they meant) and I often lost my train of thought.

    She may find that some people will "give up" or answer some of the questions incorrectly due to the fibrofog . It was also rather long to answer at one sitting, so maybe she should reduce the number of questions, as some of them appeared to me to be asking the same thing but in a different ways.

    Hope she appreciates my feedback!

  • Thanks, I pass a message along x

  • Hi Ken,

    I have similar question a few days ago, and have filled the questionnaires for it, so won't fill it again other wise it might jeopardize the survey.

  • Hi folks, I have just joined this site and this is the first thing I have done. It repeated itself a bit but I stuck with it . I have been diagnosed with fibro for about 7 years and I also have 3 breaks in my back and neck which I have now been told they have given up on :-( . Despite several spinal surgeries and untold other treatments I am now looking at my symptoms getting worse until I am permanently in a wheelchair , I am 37 and I am married with a great husband and a teen son who has took it really well. Any helpfull advice would be gratefully taken .
