Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An estimated 26 million Americans have either fibromyalgia syndrome FMS, myofascial pain syndrome MPS, or both in the form of an FMS/MPS complex. The volume by Starlanyl, a physician who specializes in the research and treatment of FMS/MPS and who has both conditions, and Copeland, a writer and FMS/MPS patient, discuss all aspects of both disorders. They also offer information on the latest medications, tips for bodywork, and suggestions for coping with family and work, getting support, and dealing with the healthcare system. Appendixes include lists of agencies and organizations and of audio and video aids. Both books are recommended for consumer health collections, but if only one can be purchased, Starlanyl and Copeland's work has the edge due to its greater scope and more comprehensive coverage.

Meet the Author

Miryam Ehrlich Williamson is a technical journalist and a charter member of the on-line Fibromyalgia Discussion Group. In 1993 when she was diagnosed with FM she was relieved to finally have a name for her condition but frustrated by the lack of information available, which led her to write this book. Ms. Williamson lives in Warwick, Massachusetts.
