Reader Review
This book is a "must have" if you suffer from these conditions!, November 9, 1997
Reviewer: Edna Plafcan ( from Pennsylvania, USA
If you have fibromyalgia and/or chronic myofascial pain syndrome(s), do yourself a favor and read this book and take it with you to your next appointment with your physician! (...)
This book thoroughly describes what these conditions are (and aren't); common conditions and why they occur; methods on how to deal with these conditions on a daily basis; tools to help you with the healing process; and lists additional resources, additional reading lists, and suppliers of health care items. And it is all done in an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand format. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 20 years ago, and with chronic myofascial pain syndrome 10 years ago. I have not only had to deal with the frustration of the symptoms of these conditions, but also the condescending attitude of many (not all) medical practitioners who made me feel like "it's all in my head" and "I'm crazy". Their "you have to live with it" attitude and/or their lack of full knowledge of this condition has been the worst part of having to deal with having this condition. My heartfelt thanks go to Devin Starland, M.D. and Mary Ellen Copeland, M.S., M.A. for writing this book. It not only is the most resourceful reference to these conditions I have read, but it is easy to understand and concise. (...)

If you can buy only one book, this is the one. , August 21, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from Northern WI United States
Devin's first survival manual was good but this book is GREAT. It is very up to date and easily understood. I like the way the chapters are broken down by topics. Chapter 8 (Signs and Symptons) is my favorite. It has sample questions (such as Do you have eye pain ?) and answers that are short but for more information on the question it refers you to which chapter(s) you can look at to learn more about it. The graphics are good and simple to figure out what they are refering to. There is a chapter on developing a strong support system which is something FMS suffers truly need. I have used this book many times already. This book is written by and for FMS suffers. Devin makes me feel like part of the "FMily". This is my new "bible". I have ordered 4 more of this book for friends just so that they leave mine alone!!!

Reader Review
Excellent state of the art review of muscle pain syndromes, June 29, 2000
Reviewer: Jan Dommerholt from Bethesda, Maryland, USA
This book is a compilation of articles by the world's experts on muscle pain syndromes, including fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome based on presentations during the 1998 Myopain conference in Italy, sponsored by the International Myopain Society. It provides an excellent overview of the current knowledge base of these syndromes, the etiology, treatment options, etc. The book is intended for persons with some medical background and may be a bit too technical for others. Highly recommended!
