See How Small Movement Can Help to Relieve Pain When Trying to Manage Arthritis

In this very honest and real vlog you can clearly see how fibromyalgia and arthritis affects Louise Trewern’s daily life.

Louise explains that with pain “everyday is different” but she still tries to get out for her daily walk. This is so important for Louise because being in the fresh air alters her state of mind. And keeping mobile, especially with the arthritis, helps to relieve her pain.

Louise is an ambassador for Active Devon and supports the We Are Undefeatable campaign. This is the first of a small series of vlogs that Louise will be filming herself. Across the series she will be telling her story to help others living with fibromyalgia and arthritis.
