"The help to recovery"

About: Victoria Hospital / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

I have fibromyalgia and had a flare up in march 2013. I ended up losing my job and social life, my family life was also suffering I was stuck in such a rut. I got referred to a specialist M. E CFS nurse. I have had regular visits from him and every time it has been very positive and helped me so much with strategies to my recovery. This service is fantastic I am so grateful for the help I have received.
