A FREE awareness evening for young adults with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)/ME and fibromyalgia will be held in Newbury on Tuesday.
The event, at the West Berkshire Community Hospital, will be hosted by the West Berkshire Fibromyalgia Support Group, as well as The Department of Pain Medicine at the Royal Berkshire Hospital (RBH), Reading.
The aim of the evening is to provide information and support to young people in the area and to publicly launch the service evaluation research project.
Alice Gostomski, of the West Berkshire Fibromyalgia Support Group, said: “There will be members of our local fibromyalgia support group at the event.
“Our members will be happy to meet some new faces at the event and hear how others deal with these debilitating conditions over a cup of coffee.
“We hold meetings, usually once a month, at the West Berkshire Community Hospital and would be pleased to welcome some new members to join our group.”
Clinical lead for pain medicine at the Royal Berkshire Hospital Dr Deepak Ravindran said: “We are inviting anyone aged 16 to 30 years old, who is registered at one of the 13 practices within the West Berkshire area to take part in our research project.
