Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition characterized by pain in the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Other symptoms include fatigue, sleep problems, allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, stiffness, anxiety, depression and problems with short-term memory and concentration. Living with Fibromyalgia offers tried-and-tested advice on how to reduce pain, boost energy levels and live more comfortably. In line with the latest thinking of fibromyalgia as a disorder of the CNS (central nervous system), this third edition looks at how an over-sensitised system may amplify pain messages and trigger the symptoms of fibromyalgia. It also looks at research into the link between poor sleep and the disorder.
Christine Crags-Hinton has written several books for Sheldon, including three best-selling books on fibromyalgia.
