    A bit of hope for an otherwise frustrating problem

    There's not a lack of information available for people who suffer from FMS; unfortunately most of that information is untested,untried or just untrue. Most of these "experts" have never even treated FMS patients. This book, written by practicing medical doctors, tries to help the reader sort out what may work for some fibromyalgia patients and it's done so using plain English. It provides a ray of hope for an otherwise frustrating medical condition.
