From the Back Cover:

The Classic Guide to FM Pain is Back in Its New Expanded & Updated Third Edition!

If you suffer from widespread muscle pain, stiffness, and fatigue, you are not alone. You may be one of the 10 million Americans who has fibromyalgia. Whether you have constant or intermittent pain, When Muscle Pain Won't Go Away is the groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind guide that tells you everything you need to know about fibromyalgia: how FM is diagnosed, basic symptoms and conditions, treatment options, and simple pain-relieving exercises. It also offers useful techniques for coping when FM affects your personal life and work performance, answers to the most commonly asked questions about FM, and much, much more.

When it first appeared in 1992, When Muscle Pain Won't Go Away helped thousands of people make sense of the frustrating and little-understood syndrome called fibromyalgia. It gave people with chronic muscle pain a reliable source of sensitive, sound information that they couldn't find anywhere else. Now, no longer seen as simply a musculoskeletal disorder, FM has been shown to impact the gastrointestinal, neurological, cardio/pulmonary, and automatic nervous systems as well. Completely revised and updated to include these recent medical findings, the third edition of When Muscle Pain Won't Go Away includes:
FM in children
The newest medications and therapies
Alternative medicine in treating FM
New information on raising FM awareness
An FM online information source list

In straightforward language, Gayle Backstrom, who has FM, and Dr. Bernard R. Rubin explain the latest findings in fibromyalgia research and demystify this chronic muscle pain syndrome.

If you think you have FM or know someone who does, there is no better resource to turn to!
