Product description

Review

'Having managed her own fibromyalgia, Christine now passes her experience and knowledge on to others so that they do not have to spend their precious time researching what she has already done. Progress has been made over the last few years and more medical professionals are recognising the symptoms, but there are still many who lack the knowledge to diagnose and treat fibromyalgia effectively. At present there are no national guidelines for treatment. This is one reason this book is so vital to those with fibromyalgia their families, friends and employers.' --Pam Stewart MBE, Fibromyalgia Association UK chair --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Author

An easy-to-read book tackling every aspect of fibromyalgia
Living with Fibromyalgia is the first British-written book to tackle this complex condition. I suffer from fibromyalgia myself, and was at one time so debilitated I was almost permanently bed-bound. My husband had to feed me, wash me, brush my hair etc. However, now I am able to work at my computer for an hour and a half a day, I go for short walks, and my husband and I visit the pub on Saturday nights! The very fact that I have managed to write this book is testament to my self-help approach, for, as yet, improvement depends largely upon the individual's own efforts. The book, then, carries the very latest research findings and considers the possible causes of the condition. The style and format ensures that readers will not only have a better understanding of fibromyalgia, but they will also learn how best to manage the condition. Areas covered are the conditions commonly associated with fibromyalgia, medication, diet and the digestive system (including how chronic candida infections in the gut can cause many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia), posture and exercise, benefits information, complementary therapies known to be useful in treating the condition, pain management techniques, and finally a detailed chapter which addresses the emotional consequences of fibromyalgia and how best to deal with them. The book has undergone detailed examination by Pain Consultant Dr J. Raphael, who has a special interest in fibromyalgia. He has also written the Foreword. Bob Stewart, chairman of the FMS Association UK has also written, "This book contains well-researched medical information, and also considers the everyday problems facing fibromyalgia sufferers and carers, such as coping around the house, benefits, and where to get further help. The Fibromyalgia Association are delighted to endorse this book.'

My wife suffers from fibro. If you are related to someone who suffers from fibro do not buy this book for advice on how to cope or help the affected person with this syndrome. Although the author has a positive mental attitude towards the syndrome (not disease) which is appreciated, you probably won't take much from this book that you do not already know.

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.

Practical, easy to read, and covers all you need to know. I was recently diagnosed by my doctor and I had never even heard of Fibromyalgia so this little book has been a real help.

I found this book tedious, no new insights and no real practical advice
either. In fact I've found far better information on websites and in forums The narrative was dry and boring
It mentions symptoms but doesn't go into any detail
Certainly not worth the money it was returned
