Overview

Millions suffer from such symptoms as muscle aches, pains, and stiffness, chronic fatigue, joint swelling, tension or migraine-type headaches, irritable bowels, sleep disturbances, numbness, and hypersensitivity to temperature and humidity. Sadly, these people believe they have to live with their ailments, because even their doctors are unaware they have fibrositis, a highly treatable syndrome caused by stress—and often mistaken for arthritis, rheumatism, and Epstein-Barr infection.

In this book, Dr. Paul Davidson will help you determine whether you are a prime candidate for fibrositis—and introduce you to the 7-step RETRAIN method that will enable you to overcome your symptoms by eliminating the underlying stress that causes them:

  • Rest and Relaxation
  • Education
  • Therapeutic Muscle Training
  • Responding to Stress
  • Analgesics and Other Medications
  • Involvement
  • Never Give Up Hope
