Meet the Author

Lynne Matallana was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1995. Her frustration with lack of available treatments inspired her to create an organization that would focus on awareness for this misunderstood illness. The National Fibromyalgia Association has since grown into a major force. She is also the editor-in-chief of Fibromyalgia AWARE magazine.

Laurence A. Bradley, Ph.D., has devoted his research career to the study of biological and psychosocial factors that influence persistent pain associated with fibromyalgia. He heads the department for fibromyalgia research at the University of Alabama.
