In her book, Fibromyalgia Basics, author Pati Chandler offers a simple-to-understand primer from a layperson s perspective. As one of about 12 million Americans with this arthritis-related condition, Chandler shares numerous years of knowledge and research.
Chandler begins her book with firsthand experience of the odd amalgamation of symptoms that make up this syndrome and the difficulty of diagnosis that fibromyalgia sufferers know all too well. But far from being a pity party, the book offers a light at the end of the tunnel.
For the newly diagnosed, the over-medicated, or those who ve just not kept up-to-date on the research, Fibromyalgia Basics shares immense insights that can help those with fibromyalgia regain control of their lives. Chandler explains fibro triggers and tells about alternative and complementary therapies and herbal and nutritional supplements that can ease suffering, often drug-free. Suggested lifestyle changes such as pacing oneself, exercise, and sleep and dietary habits further assist the reader in limiting fibromyalgia triggers.
Chandler packs a lot of information and hope for fibromyalgia patients in just 141 pages. The 15 pages of endnotes direct readers to additional information and support.
Fibromyalgia Basics is available in print or e-book at Tate publishing at her website. There is a free downloadable audio book inside this book .

This book is a Beginner s Guide to Fibromyalgia and will help those who have just been diagnosed with the disease or those who think they might have the disease. It is estimated that there are twelve million sufferers of this disease, but if you re not one of these, chances are you will know someone who is affected by it.
Fibromyalgia is not a disease that can be diagnosed easily as some diseases, nor is there any one treatment that will work on all people suffering with it. Symptoms may vary with each person, as well as the treatments. And the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown. Pati Chandler has written this little guide book to let you know what Fibromyalgia is, to help the symptoms, how to get medical help, what to tell your doctor, and the medicine given. She also describes the aggravators, and what to do to help calm them down. She gives you a lot of resources to research Fibromyalgia to find out what will work for you. And then she tells the story of having Fibromyalgia.
This is a great book for those just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I chose this book to review because I have Fibromyalgia, and wanted to learn more about it. The book is chunked full of helpful information. With each chapter she breaks it down into the dos and don ts, treatments and medications, and things to try and see what works for you.
There are several things I really like about the book. One is the author s research, enabling us to have a wealth of information and resources at our fingertips. I like the Bountiful Resources chapter near the end. She breaks down research categories and gives websites for each, explains what you ll find in each, and the doctors and people associated with the website. She also has a list of books and videos that are helpful. And another thing that helped me was the chapter on her journey with Fibromyalgia. It made me realize that I am not alone in my journey, and the things I feel are real, not something I imagine, like so many people think.
The last thing I like is the chapter on End Notes. In this chapter she takes each chapter in the book and gives websites for everything she talks about in each chapter.
In this small book, she has made it possible for people like me with Fibromyalgia to find anything I need, all from this one little book. I just can t say enough about it!
