Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984920730, Paperback)This multi-national and international award winning book was written for the tens of millions of people worldwide who suffer from fibromyalgia and other chronic painful conditions. I believe members of the medical community will also benefit from the book’s content. As a Dartmouth Rheumatology Fellowship trained Board Certified Rheumatologist, I have been treating patients with these conditions for over 20 years. The vast majority of my private medical practice consists of patients with fibromyalgia and other chronic painful conditions. Throughout the years (through my patients) I have learned how to medically manage patients who suffer from chronic painful conditions. Even with all of the magnificent advances in medicine, people who suffer from fibromyalgia and other chronic painful conditions remain an under served and disenfranchised component of the medical community. This should not be the case. My philosophy is that “nobody” should have to suffer and live with chronic pain on a daily basis. This is unnecessary. There are all types of appropriate cost effective medications (generics) which are available to treat all kinds of painful conditions. The problem that patients with chronic painful conditions face is their ability to get to the right type of doctor who will not only embrace their problem, but manage their pain effectively. In my book, I systematically approach the concepts of fibromyalgia, the manifestations of this condition and other chronic painful processes, and I review available medications and their modes of actions. I explain why certain medications should be effective, and why others will not be helpful. I discuss the concept of “off-labeling” a medication (using a medication beyond its FDA indication) for the management of fibromyalgia and other chronic painful conditions; the key concept to my success in managing these patients throughout the years. I focus on how one needs to begin their journey on finding the right doctor to help them with their problem. There are plenty of physicians, out there, who know how to effectively treat these conditions. This book will help the reader to streamline the process. This is not a how-to book. The reader will become better adept at communicating with their doctor, which will help to facilitate maximal effective pain management.
