The Fibromyalgia Syndrome summarizes major advances in the understanding of fibromyalgia and helps increase readers’knowledge of the disorder, which can lead to the development of new strategies for diagnosis and treatment. Fibromyalgia is not an uncommon disorder, and can be a frustrating problem for patients and physicians alike. In this valuable reference, leading experts in the field of fibromyalgia research provide important information on fibromyalgia and offer suggestions for future research.

Contributing authors begin to unravel the many unanswered questions about fibromyalgia as they explore the mechanisms underlying pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbance, the interrelationship between pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbance, and the relationship between fibromyalgia and other overlapping disorders. This book provides current knowledge, identifies research gaps and opportunities, and recommends future directions for research on the cause, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome. Chapters are divided into sections which examine:

  • the clinical spectrum and epidemiology of fibromyalgia
  • neuroendocrine and metabolic aspects of fibromyalgia
  • therapeutic interventions
  • research opportunities and recommendations

    Readers will find themselves challenged to learn more about fibromyalgia syndrome, how to recognize and diagnose it earlier, and begin effective treatment sooner. The Fibromyalgia Syndrome is an instructive and informative resource for researchers, physicians, and knowledgeable lay people who are interested in learning more about this enigmatic disorder.
