Book Description :

Clinical Overview and Pathogenesis of the Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and Other Pain Syndromes highlights the work of featured speakers from the MYOPAIN ?95 Third World Congress, an international meeting of the minds regarding the two soft tissue pain conditions of myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia syndrome. The work compiled in this anthology advances reader understanding of these two disorders by sharing the most advanced research in this field. The authors in Clinical Overview and Pathogenesis of the Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and Other Pain Syndromes range from clinician investigators to basic scientists, from around the world, whose work has been an important overlap with the directions being taken by clinician investigators in each field. These authors review what has been learned about the clinical features of patient presentation and the contemporary treatments for each disorder. Authors also trace past progress of these disorders as a means for understanding their pathogenesis and to point toward future research directions. This unrivaled source allows physicians, dentists, researchers, and others working in this field to build on proven progress and prepare for the MYOPAIN ?98 meeting in Italy.

Book Description :

Discover the latest information for correctly diagnosing FMS at your practice The National Fibromyalgia Association estimates that about 10 million Americans and approximately 3% of the population worldwide suffer with fibromyalgia syndrome, yet the criteria used by doctors to diagnose fibromyalgia is 14 years out of date. The Fibromyalgia Syndrome examines the expert consensus developed by the Health Canada Fibromyalgia Syndrome Committee with the goal of helping practitioners distinguish FMS from other syndromes/illnesses that exhibit chronic body pain. The text encompasses a very broad scope of FMS, including its clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment. This resource provides you with: a new approach to case definition proposed research to validate the new case definition a practical approach to assessment of severity empathetic management what is known about pathogenesis This book meets the growing need for up-to-date information about objective abnormalities in people with FMS and for an integrated approach to its diagnosis and management by primary care physicians. The Fibromyalgia Syndrome will also encourage the scientific and academic communities to actively research the clinical care of people with FMS, ensuring that more effective therapies and medications will be available in the future. These guidelines present a flexible framework that includes the 1990 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria and encompasses more of the potential symptomatic expression of patients. The Fibromyalgia Syndrome provides several appendices to help you find crucial information at a moment’s notice, including: a glossary of acronyms a list of both commonly and rarely seen signs and symptoms of FMS a fibromyalgia syndrome clinical worksheet differential diagnoses of the symptoms of FMS a Symptom Severity and Hierarchy Profile (SSHP) worksheet the Pain Visual Analog Scale (PAIN VAS) and Body Pain Diagram and more The Fibromyalgia Syndrome offers proposed methods and studies to develop and validate the clinical case definition to ascertain its applicability to the clinical practice setting. With better education and increased awareness of FMS, physicians can make a diagnosis earlier in the patient’s course and initiate valuable outpatient care, lessening expensive hospitalization and associated costs.

Book Description :

Part of the Oxford Rheumatology Library, the second edition of Fibromyalgia Syndrome provides a succinct and practical guide to help rheumatologists and general practitioners diagnose and manage patients with fibromyalgia syndrome. The emphasis throughout is on tailoring treatment to the individual patient, and considering a combination of education, non-pharmacological, and pharmacological treatments. This comprehensive approach improves symptoms and quality of life in all those treated for FMS, benefitting not only patients but also healthcare providers and society. Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) afflicts 2-5% of the population, more commonly females than males. It is characterised by chronic widespread pain, although fatigue, sleep disturbance, depression, anxiety, stiffness, and cognitive dysfunction are also common. National and international societies recognise the healthcare burden of FMS, and published recommendations and guidelines emphasise the importance of a positive diagnosis and management strategy to empower patients to cope with FMS. Now updated with new ACR criteria and additional international guidelines on the management of the syndrome, this pocketbook provides the reader with an essential understanding of the pathophysiology of pain in fibromyalgia, the different subtypes of fibromyalgia, and the pitfalls in diagnosis and management of this chronic condition.

Book Description :

Pilar’s Fibropedia is a compendium of knowledge that refers to fibromyalgia and the detonating factors of cells, as well as a compilation of strategies and treatments that can include diseases and possibilities that both patients and family members have to treat this condition. The book is dedicated to people living with fibromyalgia, their relatives and doctors who are unaware of their existence and who are interested in the treatment. The book consists of ten chapters that deal with the brief history of the condition, how it is diagnosed, the types of fibromyalgia and the factors that influence its development. There is also a section that deals with the relationship between fibromyalgia, food and sleep, to conclude with allopathic treatments, alternative therapies and psychological therapies that help improve the quality of life of those with fibromyalgia. Through the pages of this book, the author shares her vision of life with fibromyalgia, the challenges that everyone faces and how she has overcome those challenges; always looking to give incentive to those who believe they have lost the battle to an entity so unknown and disconcerting. It is important to emphasize that the author seeks to give voice to those who have remained in the dark, providing a light of hope and how it can help a society of social support so that with knowledge, love, education and affection. This work was made by the efforts of the Mexican Foundation for Fibromyalgia (FIBRO), which started work in 1999 and its Founder María del Pilar Covarrubias Montaño who is the author. The Mexican Foundation for Fibromyalgia is a non-profit civil association whose purpose is to research, update and disseminate information about fibromyalgia, as well as comprehensive care for those who suffer.
