I'm writing on behalf of a friend with Fibro and recently diagnosed early onset athritis of the spine. Historically, about 15 years ago she was referred to a rheumatologist but was signed off after a year or so. Anyway, now her fibro is going from bad to worse and the pain relief options make her feel worse. Her GP is neither referring her to a rheumotologist or a pain specialist just saying she needs to pack her job in??? It's my understanding she can ask for a referral and we plan to. What I'd like to know is if there are any particularly good NHS fibro clinics in the North West? Failing that where else might she go? Thank you
