Product Description

From Library Journal

...Starlanyl (Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome: A Survival Manual, LJ 9/15/96) offers an impassioned, in-depth manifesto for FMS and myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) patients that explores the wide spectrum of traditional and alternative approaches to these two disorders. Herself a physician living with both FMS and MPS, Starlanyl gives the reader valuable information for working with various health specialists through numerous "data sheets" geared to a particular practitioner, e.g., the cardiologist or dentist. Although her book would seem to accept uncritically many experimental therapies for FMS and MPS, Starlanyl argues that in medicine "hardening of the attitudes" is a common response of clinicians who lack a true understanding of these two painful conditions. Well referenced, with an extensive index but no illustrations, this is essential for every consumer health collection. Lisa McCormick, Health Sciences Lib., Jewish Hosp., Cincinnati
