Fibromyalgia affects an estimated 2.7 million people in the UK, yet it is a condition which is poorly understood leaving the people with it often facing ignorance and prejudice. Presenter Paul Evans, who has fibromyalgia himself, talks with Lexy Barber about her experiences of coping with it. We also hear from Professor Ernest Choy and Prof Dwight Moulin about advances in medical knowledge of the condition and possible ways of managing symptoms.
