Description - Fibromyalgia by Don L. Goldenberg

Fibromyalgia is a debilitating disease that affects a large number of people. With symptoms ranging from extreme fatigue to sleep disturbances, headaches and pain throughout the body, it is a disease which for years has baffled medical science. This is a guide to the causes, symptoms and treatment options for this increasingly common illness. Don Goldenberg has treated many sufferers and here he seeks to answer patients' most frequently-asked questions. The volume addresses: the common symptoms and why they occur; the link between fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; the theories about the causes of the disease; the connection between your emotional state and fibromyalgia; the conventional treatments available; the effectiveness of complementary and natural remedies; and the myths and misconceptions that surround this disease.
