Fibromyalgia and Muscle Pain: Your Guide to Self-Treatment Reviews
Some good info on self-treatment in the last half of the book,and some interesting stuff on the various disorders that have to be ruled out for a Fibro dx. But, the research quoted is old. Very little after 2000.i looked and realized this is an updated version of a book originally put out in 2001 and as I read it I had to question how much it had been updated. The answer seems to be very little.
By far one of the most informative books I've ever read when it comes to fibromyalgia, muscle pain, and the many symptoms that occur in the body. I particularly appreciate how detailed the author is in explaining not only all of the symptoms that are related to fibromyalgia, but what the body is doing when they occur. I love the outline format that is used, the diagrams are helpful, and I couldn't recommend this book enough. Out of all of the doctors and specialists one may go to for an accurate diagnosis, this book has been more descriptive in what fibromyalgia is and the methods one can use to help ease symptoms (this includes both traditional and alternative methods).
This is one of the better books I have read on the subject of fibromyalgia, though I cannot give it five stars because it advocates homeopathy and other debunked 'alternative' medical treatments. This was a real shame, because the explanations this book gave on possible causes of fibromyalgia were a real eye-opener. If you are a critical thinker, this is a good book.
I won this book on Goodreads. My daughter-in-law has this awful disease. This book has helped me understand what she is going through. She has not been able to explain it and this book really opened my eyes to her pain.
This is a great book. It thoroughly explains everything and anything the reader wants to know about Fibromyalgia. As well as information to help with this debilitating disease. A definite "coffee table" Book for occasional reference. THANK YOU GOODREADS FIRSTREADS FOR THIS FREE BOOK!!!!!
This may be the best book on Fibromyalgia I have read. it contains many options for treatment and most you can so for yourself. It utilises research to support it's recommendations. I highly recommend this book for those with Fibromyalgia.
good information but it does go on a bit.
