Fibromyalgia and M.E. blog

Our newest blog is for people with fibromyalgia and M.E., also known as chronic fatigue syndrome. We were prompted to set the blog up by the number of comments left on NHS Choices articles on these two areas. So if you have one of these conditions, or care for someone who does, we'd love you to sign up as a blogger and tell your story.

Also on NHS Choices

You can rate and comment on almost any NHS service on NHS Choices. So if you've recently visited your GP or dental practice or a hospital, why not share your experience.
