Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic survival manual offers you the first comprehensive patient guide for managing the common but often misdiagnosed conditions of fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain. The management techniques found in Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain include targeted bodywork for painful trigger points and strategies to help you cope with the chronic pain, sleep problems, and numbing effects of 'fibrofog' that occur as a result of the disease.

This edition includes coverage of promising new research on the causes of fibromyalgia, evaluation of new treatments, complete discussions of special issues for women and men, and the latest information on medication. It includes a popular provider index, which can help you select those practitioners who will take your complaints seriously and offer knowledgeable treatment advice.

An invaluable resource for self-help.... Starlanyl has produced a monumental labor of love with candor and meticulous attention to important details.

-David G. Simons, M.D., Emory University

Devin Starlanyl has done it again. She has compiled and distilled current research and theory about fibromyalgia into a readable book that will empower everyone who reads it.

-Robert Gerwin, M.D., Johns Hopkins University

I heartily recommend The Fibromyalgia Advocate to all of my colleagues and their patients.

Lawrence A. Funt, D.D.S., M.S.D., director of the Cranio-Facial Pain Center, Bethesda, Maryland
