    It is called Fibromyalgia for Dummies by Christine A.Adamec Roland Staud.
    or have you got another book in mind that would be better.

    Please let us know what you think of this book Tammy.My favourite book is 'Fibromyalgia the first year' by Claudia Craig Marek, a specialidst nurse (& I'd had fibro 16 years before I read it!).

    i have this one. its pretty basic but a good read. i also have Fibromysalgia & Chronic myofasical pain by Devin Starlanyl (not sure if i spelled that right but its a really thorough book) and Chronic fatigue fibromyalgia and other invisble illnesses by K. Berne which has a great list of symptoms for fibro and cf. this one was the first one i'd gotten because i wasnt sure if i had fibro or cfs. i read this b4 while waiting for my 1st doc appt.

    everyone for your advice, as there is so many choices of books it's hard to know which are the best to buy. so will look into your suggestions.

    I have this book and I think all Doctors should read it. They might then have a clue about this DD

    It's a great reference, easy to understand and its great to refer other people (normals) to it because they can understand it easily also.

    I read "What Your Doctor May Not tell you about Fibromyalgia." and thought it was terrific. Maybe you've already read it.

    I really thought Devin Starnyls book, the Fibromyalgia Advocate has been the best book I have read to date. She says all the things that are going on with my body..then goes on to explain a lot of what people you deal with, medical doctors, dentists, etc should know in order to deal with you. The first time I read it..I thought , Wow, she knows exactly what I have!
