On Friday, March 28 through Monday, March 31, 2014 the 5th Fibromyalgia Conference will be held at Chichester Park Hotel in West Sussex, England.

This is a 4 day, 3 night event dedicated to the education of fibromites with some fun and laughter in the evenings. The conference objective is to invite FM speakers from abroad to share news of research and progress in the fight to find a cure.

The conference is supported by Folly Pogs Fibromyalgia Research, founded in 2009 with the first conference in 2010 with the idea of raising funds for research and sharing education with those suffering with FM.

For the 2014 conference we are delighted that Professor Andrew Holman, MD has agreed to join us for the long weekend. We are even happier that he has agreed to give us our first series of four lectures during the conference. This will conclude with "THE BIG PICTURE: How BJH, ANS, PC3, sleep and dopamine unify FM. Making Sense of the nonsensical."

Other conference speakers include Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, a Russian, worldwide lecturer and neurosurgeon who specializes in the gut, psychology and nutrition. In addition Dr Peter Fisher, who is the Physician to HRH The Queen of England, is bringing a team of doctors and specialists who represent a new fibromyalgia clinic in London.  Other speakers will be talking about mindfulness, hypnotic gastric bands, healing provided by Mexican hairless dog, new research relating to nerve ends and fibromyalgia, and much more. Delegates are looking forward to the very popular informal sessions for MEET THE PROFESSOR and MEET THE AUTHOR where they can purchase books signed by the author.

There are still some double rooms available with twin beds. The conference with accommodation and full board plus evening entertainment costs just £200 per person sharing a room for 4 days and 3 nights.
