    Fibromyalgia

    All UK employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work, and this includes the prevention of industrial illnesses and diseases such as fibromyalgia. Personal injury compensation claims are not uncommon for fibromyalgia, as it is quite often a work-related condition.

    Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome which causes pain in the soft tissue around joints, in the skin and organs, as opposed to in the bones like arthritis does. The pain is usually widespread and can vary greatly from patient to patient, and from day to day. Some patients suffer other symptoms as well as the pain, such as:

    • Anxiety;
    • Memory difficulties;
    • Tiredness;
    • Headaches;
    • Sleeplessness;
    • Tingling sensations;
    • Irritable bowel syndrome;
    • Irritable bladder syndrome; and
    • Depression.

    There are now tests to help in diagnosis, so quite often it means months of suffering for the patient before any sort of medical help is given, and they may have had to stop working until they can be treated. As there is not a cure for this condition, it is a case of trying to manage the symptoms to attempt to make life more bearable for the sufferer.

    How bad the situation is does not always become apparent until many months later, when the person is in a lot of pain and usually unable to work because of it. 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.

    No win no fee* Clovelly lawyers will help you to make your personal injury claim

    If it can be shown that the condition has been caused through the victim’s job, then a personal injury compensation claim can be made against the employer. Heavy lifting in an incorrect manner can be one of the causes, and your employer should not be allowing this to happen.
