Fibromyalgia is often misunderstood, and finding good information about it can be difficult. This introduction provides background, causes and symptoms, treatments and lifestyle adjustments that can help sufferers live better with fibromyalgia, while helping caregivers and others achieve a better understanding of the needs of their loved ones.
Dr. Naheed Ali offers a comprehensive book on the different aspects of fibromyalgia including the history, the clinical picture, and the different ways of coping. Pain, sleep, and related psychological problems'such as fibro-fog'are explained, in addition to clearly presenting both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments. Written in a very humanistic way without compromising the scientific background, this book is quite accessible for the patient yet still appeals to clinicians as well.
Naheed Ali, M.D., is the author of Arthritis and You (Rowman & Littlefield, 2013), Understanding Parkinson's Disease (Rowman & Littlefield, 2013), Understanding Lung Cancer (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014), Understanding Celiac Disease (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014), and Understanding Pain (Rowman & Littlefield, 2015),. He has appeared as a special guest on numerous talk shows and has been quoted in many national print magazines and TV websites across the US, including Woman's World, Prevention, Whole Living,,, and others.
