Disabilities Spinal Injuries

Fibromyalgia is a common enough disease, and as a so-called incurable disease, ahs many "cures" floating around.  I attempt to ignore those and to focus my attention on web articles which are descriptive of the syndrome.

The first of these is a well laid out web type page (ie sutable for browsers).   It is fairly lengthy, and goes into detail in many areas affected by Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatifue Syndrome.

 

The second and third are text pages which I have found to offer brief but firm descriptions of the syndrome and, in some cases, it's treatment without raising false hopes.

For American citizens, they have the American Fibromyalgia Syndrome Association, Inc..  Britons have, I see, The Fibromyalgia Association UK in Stockbridge, West Midlands.    

Also for Britain is  http://www.lewolf.com/fms.htm.   This offers support, it would seem (I am open to correction) rather than medical cure....they run an email list for sufferers, for example.  Please look at the web site and come to your own conclusions.

 

 

 

 

I also present a link to a series of articles online, articles entitled

Neurally Mediated Hypotension: Its surgical evaluation, management and early outcome as part of the Fibromyalgia. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

 

Michael J. Rosner, MD; Peter D. Amour, MD and Peter C. Rowe, MD

 

and

Michael J Rosner, MD, FACS, FCCM

 

Dr Rosner also has an interesting article at entitled

leading to

the

 

Chiari Malformation

 

I am informed that Fibromyalgia is a form of the Chiari Malformation.    A Conference hosted by the National Fibromyalgia Research Foundation gave, out of many things, abstracts that I have copied here.   To view more info about this, please visit

which is the World ACM Association's web page.    Some definitions are listed for the laymen amongst us (such as me);

 

 

 

I hope this goes some way towards helping sufferes of Fibromyalgia.
