Survey into symptoms of people with FM, CFS and IBS

Volunteers are required for a questionnaire study comparing the symptoms of people with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and irritable bowel syndrome.  The study is being carried out by researchers at Plymouth University.

A comprehensive survey into the symptoms of people with ME/CFS, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome is the first study to exam a wide range of symptoms of people with these conditions.  The aim of the study is to find out to what extent there is an overlap in symptoms and to what extent symptoms are different between different diagnoses. Anyone with these conditions can take part, and the study is also being advertised on ME/CFS and IBS websites.

The questionnaire is completed online and is anonymous.   The questionnaire asks you to rate the frequency of 62 symptoms. It takes about 4 minutes to complete, but some might take more and some less time.  We need as large a sample as possible, so if you can spare the time, we would be very grateful if you could take part.

 FMA UK will be provided with the results once they have been analysed.
