Overview

La fibromialgia -también conocida como la "enfermedad invisible" debido a que sus síntomas pueden confundirse con el de otras enfermedades dificultando su diagnóstico- es un padecimiento desconocido o mal entendido por la mayoría de los médicos y por la sociedad en general. Al tratarse de un padecimiento recientemente identificado y estudiado, el gran número de personas que la padecen son poco comprendidas en su malestar.
La molestia principal de los enfermos de fibromialgia es el dolor intenso en diversas partes del cuerpo, acompañado de otros síntomas como cansancio profundo que no mejora con el reposo, insomnio, ansiedad, jaquecas, calambres, hormigueo de brazos y piernas, cólicos abdominales, urgencia y ardor al orinar. Generalmente, los médicos especialistas ordenan múltiples análisis de laboratorio y estudios radiológicos de sus pacientes. Al observar resultados negativos, con frecuencia descartan la existencia de la enfermedad, atribuyendo la sintomatología a factores meramente psicológicos.
En este libro, el doctor Martínez Lavín, reconocido especialista en el tema, brinda un mapa completo de esta enfermedad. Basado en avanzados estudios científicos, describe en forma directa, clara y con detalle las causas que desencadenan la fibromialgia; las molestias que provoca; cómo se puede diagnosticar; y, los distintos tratamientos disponibles.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas

Fibromyalgia, a relatively common disorder affecting approximately two percent of the population (most of them women), is difficult to diagnose and treat. Unfamiliar with this condition, many physicians who see women complaining of constant muscle pain and fatigue (symptoms of fibromyalgia) label them hypochondriacs. Martínez Lavín, a professor of rheumatology at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and a researcher at the Instituto Nacional de Cardiología de México (National Institute of Cardiology), carefully explains this complex disease. He defines fibromyalgia and traces its history; discusses the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options, including traditional and alternative medicines as well as holistic approaches (though he cautions patients about charlatans who may hawk miracle cures); and mentions other diseases that may have similar symptoms. Martínez Lavín also touches upon the public health implications of the disease and disability in the workplace; and an interesting chapter about fibromyalgia in the life and work of Frida Kahlo provides new insight into her art. Complete with a bibliography of clinical articles, this useful volume is recommended for public and consumer health libraries, as well as bookstores.-Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L., CA
