-- by Devin Starlanyl, M. D.

The definitive book on fibromyalgia, but also a useful text on myofascial pain syndrome. For many years the pain of "fibro" has been dismissed by doctors as an imaginary disease of nervous women. Starlanyl is a woman, and an M. D. and and has fibro -- as do many men.

Fibro is commonly confused with myofascial pain syndrome. The two conditions commonly overlap, although fibro is more directly related to metabolic problems and possibly head/neck injury. Here you will find solid and sensible information on signs and symptoms of fibromylagia vs. myofascial pain, pain and fatigue, perpetuating factors, medication, nutrition, and resources. Also includes a large selection of the famous B. D. Cummings trigger point illustrations from Travell & Simons' Myofascial Pain & Dysfunction.

    "It is becoming increasingly clear that nearly all fibromyalgia patients have myofascial trigger points that are contributing significantly to their total pain problem." -- David G. Simons, M. D.
