This classic survival manual offers you the first comprehensive patient guide for managing the common but often misdiagnosed conditions of fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain. The management techniques found in Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain include targeted bodywork for painful trigger points and strategies to help you cope with the chronic pain, sleep problems, and numbing effects of 'fibrofog' that occur as a result of the disease.

This edition includes coverage of promising new research on the causes of fibromyalgia, evaluation of new treatments, complete discussions of special issues for women and men, and the latest information on medication. It includes a popular provider index, which can help you select those practitioners who will take your complaints seriously and offer knowledgeable treatment advice.

"Devin Starlanyl has a remarkable determination to help relieve mankind of unnecessary suffering. The guidance in this book an serve both practitioners who have yet to understand the nature of their own musculoskeletal aches and pains, and patients who are unable to find a practitioner adequately skilled in this neglected subject. The message of this book is a voice crying out in a wilderness of neglect."
--David G. Simons, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine at Emory University


"Devin Starlanyl and her work are incredible resources to the fibromyalgic community. She has tirelessly researched her subject and freely and lovingly shared it with those who have suffered pain and disability."
--Dr. Craig N. Anderson, D.C., past president of the Vermont Chiropractic Association


"In a 1997 book review, I extolled the extraordinary features of the first edition of Starlanyl and Copeland's Survival Manual. As caregivers to FMS/MPS patients and sufferers themselves, their advice in the book was superbly tuned to readers' needs. Now, in this second edition, Starlanyl and Copeland have outshone themselves. Having updated the Survival Manual and enhanced its laudable features, they have made an already valuable book almost priceless."
--Dr. John C. Lowe, Director of Research, Fibromyalgia Research Foundation, Board Certified, American Academy of Pain Management


"They've done it again! This second edition of the Survival Manual is a gold mine of practical advice and scholarly information put into everyday language. This book gives a great many options for all aspects of FMS/CMP and its message is one of hope. An owner's manual for you, and one that should be required reading for all of your health care providers, this is not a book to be read and crossed off of your list, but a resource to avail yourself of over and over again. The tools are here. Use it yourself and have those close to you read it also."
--Richard Finn, Director, Academy for Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy, coauthor, Myofascial Pain Syndrome: Manual Trigger Point & S-EMG Therapies
