Later i'll ask about on facebook cause i know one of my friends does the purple ribbon, if its got fibro on i do not know.

you can buy the yellow ones with dots on from FMA UK but be prepared to wait and wait, took 2 months to send me 4 pens out! You can also buy the wrist bands on there and they have fibromyalgia written on, which is plain to see.

Fibroduck does wrist bands too, not sure about ribbons.

I brought some purple wrist bands in from the US, but fibromyalgia, isnt really plain to see.

I dont want the world to know im up yet, so will post a messag on facebook as the day goes on and pop back with the answer later.

take care, and i hope you all have a lovely day xx
A smile a day keeps the doctor away!

I'd be interested in finding a stockist for the fibro ribbons too, especially if profits go into fibro research or charities

I've found several sites in the past that sell fibro awareness clothing and gifts but they never stated that any money went to any charities.

The purple ribbon is the international colour. Yellow with black dots was chosen by FMA UK many years ago as the UK colour.
I run FibroAction, a small national charity raising awareness of Fibromyalgia Syndrome. I am not a qualified healthcare professional. If you would like medical references for any facts quoted, just PM me.

ohhhh the same as fibroduck, thanks Linzworld. I've just been on the website (fibroduck) and ordered 2 of the wristbands plus fridge magnet and some more ducks as my grandson squeezed my last one a little hard and his sqeaker has fallen out :yikes: :yikes: :hugs:
