Some highlights from the Parliamentary debate on fibromyalgia.

As to the way forward, it is a confusing situation but there has been no change of the equality act or any other legislation. A back bench meeting like this cannot change the law and they have passed the motion in front of them

The minister said in the debate that fibromyalgia could be a disability under the act already but people are treated on a case by case basis so it is unlikely to change anything in DWP processing any time soon.

This was great for awareness and momentum but more needs to be done.
