Product Description

Review

'Having managed her own fibromyalgia, Christine Craggs-Hinton now passes her experience and knowledge on to others so that they do not have to spend their precious time on research. At present there are no national guidelines for treatment . . . That is one reason why this book is so vital to those with fibromyalgia, their families, friends and employers.' --Pam Stewart MBE, chair of Fibromyalgia Association UK

About the Author

Christine Craggs-Hinton produced more than a dozen health books for Sheldon, including her best-selling books on fibromyalgia.

Positives:
I found this book very informative and useful to understand the research, causes and mechanisms of FMS. For example, the way that pain is processed in the brain and can become chronic, muscle tension and how this can become chronic, the role of seratonin etc. It was really good to learn about all these things and it really helped me to make sense of all the symptoms I have been having for the last 12 years (I was just recently diagnosed with FMS). It was also useful to look at management techniques.

Negatives:
The reason I have given this book 3 stars is mostly because of the chapter on 'diet and the digestive system'. The first thing I had a problem with was the suggestion that if you have FMS you probably have a yeast intolerance. A large portion of the chapter is dedicated to discussion about this, with the logic being that the symptoms of supposed yeast intolerance are similar to the symptoms of FMS. This rang some alarm bells for me as there is a lot of pseudo-science out there about diet, and most of it is not based on solid scientific evidence. I googled it and found this article about chronic candidiasis being a 'fake illness': https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/candida-and-fake-illnesses/. I am not a medical doctor and so I am no expert in this, but if such claims are going to be made in the book I really think these should be backed up with the evidence and references to this evidence. I think this is especially important for something like FMS - as someone who has been struggling with unexplained symptoms for over a decade, I know that it is very easy to be seduced by these pseudo-scientific theories that seem to explain all of your problems and offer a solution.
