Fibromyalgia: Diagnosis, causes and treatments
ITV talk show host Jonathan Ross’s daughter Betty has said she is feeling more “confident” since she bought a new electric wheelchair.
The 31-year-old, who suffers from fibromyalgia, needs the walking aid due to her painful symptoms.
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.
Betty also suffers from postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) which causes an abnormal increase in the heart rate after sitting or standing, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Taking to Instagram on Friday, Betty shared a string of snaps while trying out her new wheelchair from Distribe Limited, saying she felt it had made a big difference to her life.

In a lengthy post crediting the company, she wrote to her 6,000 followers: “Since I bought my wheelchair from Distribe just over a year ago, the world has really opened up for me so drastically and so much more than I’d even thought possible before buying.
“I’ve been able to go out, make memories, and have adventures, even on some of my worse health days.
“So much of that comes from how confident I feel in the quality of my chair, knowing that it’s not going to give up on me and leave me stranded!”.
Betty went on to add that using a wheelchair has had a “positive impact” on her life and also described herself as feeling “confident”.
