"Occupational therapist for fibromyalgia"

About: Lanarkshire Community Services / Occupational Therapy Wishaw General Hospital / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

I was recently diagnosed as having fibromyalgia. It was and is hard to deal with but my occupational therapist was brilliant. She was really nice and understanding and has really helped me a lot, in regards to understanding and managing the condition to aids in my home so I can be a little more independent. The job they do is amazing and I would definitely recommend them!
