Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome : A Survival Manual
- Paperback © copyright 1996 by Devin J. Starlanyl. Published by New Harbinger Pubns; ISBN: 1572240466 ; Dimensions (in inches): 1.09 x 10.89 x 8.41
Dr. Devin Starlanyl, who suffers herself from fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and most of the many other associated health problems known so well to those of us who share these conditions, has written what may very well be the best book on any of these increasingly common conditions, and is an essential survival manual for any person so afflicted.
This is the first comprehensive patient guide for understanding and managing Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain Syndrome. This book covers everything, from the most complete list of symptoms and their causes I have found yet, to the understanding and treatment of these conditions.
A "must read" for anyone with FMS/MPS and their families/friends, readers of this book will learn to identify the "trigger points" that cause the often-severe symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and find out how to cope with chronic pain, sleep problems, and the numbing effects of "fibrofog".
It includes a wealth of information on the conditions included in the title, and other related conditions, their symptoms, and finding treatment and support. It is particularly invaluable for the patient who is unable to get proper treatment for these conditions due to disbelief on the part of their doctors, as it provides the patient with the information necessary to obtain and make best use of such treatments, in order to achieve the best recovery possible.

Living Downstream : A Scientist's Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment - paperback edition © copyright 1998 by Sandra Steingraber. Published by Vintage Books; ISBN: 0375700994
This incredibly useful reference text on Environmental Illness is written by a biochemist who traced her own bladder cancer to the contaminated waters of her own home town. Having recognized the link between environmental contaminants and cancer, she proceeded to turn her doctoral education in the subject to the study of the toxins in our environment and the cancers that result from them.
Her results will shock and horrify anyone dependent on water that may be contaminated by agriculture or industry, which is each and every life form on earth, unless their water source has been tested and demonstrated to be safe.
The waterways of most industrial nations are contaminated by a multitude of exceedingly dangerous man-made chemical substances, most of which are not tested or limited in any meaningful way to ensure the safety or continued health of all of us who are living downstream.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Other Invisible Illness : A Complete and Compassionate Guide - Paperback © coming in July 2000 from Katrina H. Berne Phd. Published by Hunter House; ISBN: 0897932803
Revised and expanded, this edition offers the latest findings on chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and overlapping diseases such as Gulf War Syndrome. It includes new information on the interaction of the brain, emotions, and immune system as well. I can't wait to see it, as these are areas I've been closely following myself, and it sounds as though the author and I have been thinking along similar lines.
