This is an inviting and succinct guide to fibromyalgia, a syndrome that affects 6 million Americans annually. Fibromyalgia is a form of chronic neuromuscular pain, a pain-amplification syndrome brought on by abnormal interactions between hormones, the immune system, neurotransmitters, and the autonomic nervous system. Often misdiagnosed, and widely misunderstood, the majority of patients are turned away from doctors or treated for depression. In their earlier books Making Sense of Fibromyalgia and All About Fibromyalgia, noted medical writer Janice Wallace and Dr Daniel Wallace, a leading expert on this disorder, provided comprehensive guides - for both patients and professionals - to this little known and poorly understood syndrome. Now, in Fibromyalgia, the Wallaces provide an inviting and succinct version of the syndrome laid out in clear and accessible language. The authors provide a clear, concise explanation of the syndrome and its symptoms, and outline latest treatments. Fibromyalgia addresses a desperate need for concise, accessible information on this syndrome and offers reassurance to patients and their families.
