Goldstein (psychiatry, U.C. Irvine) discusses a wide variety of frequently undiagnosed or misdiagnosed disorders (including fatigue, headaches, asthma, PMS, sleep disorders, impotence, depression, and Lyme Disease), and explains to sufferers the conventional and alternative treatments, as well as lifestyle changes which can produce positive effects.

From Publishers Weekly:

This is not yet another book exhorting second opinions for complex medical conditions. Instead, Goldstein and Wolenik assess how to respond after a doctor has not found a satisfactory cure for a patient. Goldstein, a psychiatrist, claims many patients are "dumped" on him and other psychiatrists because far too many physicians are unable to treat patients whose ailments don't respond to traditional methods. The coauthors advise us on appropriate medical treatment. Case histories, listed symptoms and up-to-date information involve such conditions as chest pain, asthma, premenstrual syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, chronic sore throat, impotence and chronic fatigue syndrome. It is the latter where Goldstein, founder of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Institute, is at his best. While patients shouldn't expect perfection from their physicians, he argues convincingly that no one should settle for second-best medicine.

From Library Journal:

In this clear and concise book, Goldstein, a doctor and researcher in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and coauthor Wolenik explain how "cookbook" medicine can fail to diagnose medical problems. If undiagnosed, patients feel helpless and wonder about their mental health. The authors discuss various common illnesses that are sometimes misdiagnosed and mistreated, such as sinusitis, chronic fatigue, sleep apnea, and headaches. Using case histories as examples, they explain the symptoms of each illness and how the disease process works. One of the new wave of books aimed to help health care consumers understand the limitations of medicine and to encourage them to ask questions, this volume could be a valuable addition to consumer health collections.
