    Lower Slaughter is a village in the English county of Gloucestershire, located in the Cotswold district. Records exist showing that Lower Slaughter has been inhabited for over 1000 years.

    Fibromyalgia may need an injury claims lawyer in Lower Slaughter

    Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome that causes pain in the soft tissue around joints, in the skin and organs. The pain is usually widespread and can vary greatly from day to day in the same patient. Some days it will cause moderate discomfort and other days it can be totally disabling. Some patients experience other problems as well such as:

    • Headaches
    • Tingling sensations
    • Sleeplessness
    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Memory problems
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
    • Irritable Bladder Syndrome
    • Fatigue

    There are no known tests for the condition and no known cure. Quite often it means months of suffering for the patient, before any sort of medical help is given.

    Fibromyalgia could be caused by your job and you could need an injury lawyer Lower Slaughter

    Most doctors believe that the condition is caused by sudden stress or trauma to the body such as an accident and is quite often associated with heavy lifting at work, such as a carer lifting a patient without the proper lifting equipment, or a warehouseman consistently lifting heavy boxes. If you have the condition and it is associated with your job, you may be able to use an injury lawyer in Lower Slaughter.

    Realising how bad the situation is does not always become apparent till many months later when the employee has been doing the action causing fibromyalgia for several months. To start with, it can feel like a pulled muscle or perhaps a strained back. It is only as these don’t improve as they should and the pain gets worse, that the syndrome is diagnosed.
