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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
On previous edition:"Dr. Wallace has treated hundreds of fibromyalgia sufferers, and he clears up much misunderstanding about a disease that has sent six million Americans to doctors with complaints that often get them turned away or treated for depression.... Apart from his clear descriptions of the basic science behind the disorder and the new drug treatments available, Dr. Wallace emerges as a strong advocate for those plagued by it."--The New York Times "Dr. Wallace has treated hundreds of fibromyalgia sufferers, and he clears up much misunderstanding about a disease that has sent six million Americans to doctors with complaints that often get them turned away or treated for depression....
