If you have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia this book is a must have. The descriptions of the syndrome are spot on and also there is a great deal of practical help with the disease itself and also help with claiming benefits etc. It will help the sufferer and their families get to grips with this disease and for them to understand all the day to day problems that are associated with it. I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after years of suffering and this book has helped me and my family to deal with the disease.

This book was me. It described my symptoms exactly, explaining the intricacies of the condition in an easy-to-understand, down-to-earth way. At last I knew what was going on inside my body, and at last I could begin to take positive action, for, as well as factual information and useful resource data, this book is full of great suggestions and advice. There is even a chapter giving benefits information. The chapter on pain and stress management has been particularly useful, and is explained in such a comforting, caring way that it had me riveted. I am now in much less pain because of this book. Not only that, I have the confidence to deal with different situations and recently even went on my first holiday abroad for ten years! Thankyou for turning my life around, Christine!

I got this book a week after being diagnosed.

I have been incredibly lucky in the respect that I have been diagnosed less than a year after symptoms first flared. Some go for a decade and being with a catalogue of symptoms before they, or their doctor realise all these symptoms are related and make up the Fibromyalgia symdrome.

It is difficult for people to understand the condition and for me personally it is difficult to stay motivated to look after myself.(It feels like a huge amount of effort to stay stable). I have passed this book to loved ones and the explainations in thsi book put it into words far better than what I can. I also keep this book out so that if I ever lose motivation it is there to tell me what I need to be doing to help myself and not to beat myself up about feeling depressed occasionally- who wouldn't when faced with pain "everywhere" for over a year now!

My doctor and physiotherapist are now recommending this book to patients based on the help it has given to me. It contains an exercise routine which is physically appropriate to someone with Fibromyalgia which is worth the cover price alone.

Thank you Christine Craggs-Hinton :)

Having suffered from Fibromyalgia for the last 5 years I have been on a very long journey - only recently diagnosed after so much time of not understanding what was going on! Having read several books on fibromyalgia/myofascial pain I have been constantly frustrated to learn just how much help is available... if you live in the USA!! This book is such a welcome change as it's written from the UK perpsective - I have given it to my new GP who had never heard of the condition. We have to educate them!!! A great book.

I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia but had been living with the symptoms for many years. I purchased the book to improve my undertsanding of how to live with the condition. It was informative and I read about 3/4 of it. However, it was just information that I had read on the internet and rather uninspiring. Having read about 3/4 I then put the book aside and havn't picked it up since. It is useful for those who haven't really researched the condition through reliable sources on the internet.

I have fibromyalgia and have looked into this over the last few years its been diagnosed (in respect of myself). So much info is around today and especially over the internet so things get changed, updated etc. The book gives a sound grounding but overal not that impressed.

I guess when you have fibromyalgia, you, me and many others look for ways to help ourselves and turn to such, such as books, leaflets, discussion groups, tv etc.

Researchers give conflicting information so many of us remain in the dark as how to try to understand and live with fibromyalgia. Many of us feel alone with it yet thousands and more have it (some dont even know they have it).

I read this book but for me reading latest information online and discussion groups are far more enlightening.
