Publisher Comments:

Fibromyalgia is a medical condition characterized by widespread muscle pain and fatigue that affects 6-10 million people in the United States. Huge progress in research over the past decade has established dysfunction in sleep, pain, and the stress response in fibromyalgia. Current research suggests that the muscle pain of fibromyalgia may be generated from the fascia, the connective tissue surrounding each muscle of the body.As medical understanding of fibromyalgia has increased, so have our treatment options. With the unique perspective of a physician studying fibromyalgia from the inside, Dr. Liptan explains the most up-to-date science and guides you to the most effective treatments from both conventional and alternative medicine.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ginevra Liptan, MD, is a graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine, and is board-certified in internal medicine. After developing fibromyalgia as a medical student, she spent many years using herself as a guinea pig in a search for effective treatments. She is now medical director of the Frida Center for Fibromyalgia, and an associate professor at Oregon Health and Science University.

Fibro Sufferer, July 23, 2013 (view all comments by Fibro Sufferer)
As a fellow medical professional suffering with Fibro, I could relate to Dr. Liptan's personal story, and so appreciated her sharing the well-researched information and theories. It is one of the very best books re Fibro that I have read. THANK YOU, Dr. Liptan, for writing a helpful, useful, hope-full book. I highly recommend it to all Fibros. While it's full of concrete medical information, it's written in a manner that all can understand. LOVE the references that were cited, as it makes doing further reading so much easier. This should be on all Fibros' reference shelves.
