Ceisteanna (174)

Denis Naughten

Ceist:

174. Deputy Denis Naughten asked the Minister for Health his plans to establish a registry of persons suffering from fibromyalgia in order that it is possible to ascertain the number of persons suffering from the condition; his view on whether it would be prudent to establish the registry alongside that of arthritis in view of the fact that more persons retire early as a result of fibromyalgia than arthritis; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
