The charity FFU Scotland said anxiety, depression and sleep disorders are often a pre cursor for fibromyalgia and as a result this can affect the sufferer’s occupation and relationships.

They asked those with fibromyalgia and others to show their support by putting purple lights inside or outside homes or workplaces, wearing purple or raising awareness.

The Titan Crane will light up pink on May 15 for International Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) Awareness Day in aid of Pregnancy Sickness Support (PSS).

HG is a serious medical condition that affects one per cent of women. It can cause dehydration and other serious health complications if left untreated.

Christine Howie, a volunteer with the charity PSS, said: "I’m delighted the Titan Crane has agreed to go pink for PSS, it’s an iconic local landmark and will hopefully raise much needed awareness of HG and the suffering it causes.

"The important message we’d like to get out is that HG is not ‘just morning sickness,’ it is on the extreme end of that spectrum, so extreme it can be life threatening.

"We hope that the landmark illumination will help to raise awareness of the condition so it becomes more recognised and so women don’t have to suffer alone."
