Read an Excerpt

Though many physicians and public officials had thought that the emergence of the Internet would do much to assist patients in obtaining reliable information, in March 2001 the National Institutes of Health issued the following warning: "The number of Web sites offering" health-related resources grows every day. Many sites provide valuable information, while others may have information that is unreliable or misleading." Since the late 1990s, physicians have seen a general increase in patient Internet usage rates. Patients frequently enter their doctor's offices with printed Web pages of home remedies in the guise of latest medical research. This scenario is so common that doctors often spend more time dispelling misleading information than guiding patients through sound therapies. ... This book has been created for patients who have decided to make education and research an integral part of the treatment process. ... While this sourcebook covers polymyalgia rheumatica, your doctor, research publications, and specialists may refer to your condition using a variety of terms. Therefore, you should understand that polymyalgia rheumatica is often considered a synonym or a condition closely related to the following: Anarthritic rheumatoid syndrome; Anarthritic syndrome; Arthritic Rheumatoid Disease; Forestier-Certonciny syndrome; Polymyalgia rheumatica syndrome; Rhizomelic pseudoarthrosis.
