Item Description...
This caring and knowledgeable guide can
help you feel better--starting now
Fibromyalgia causes muscle stiffness and pain, debilitating fatigue, and numerous other symptoms. Most frustrating of all, people with fibromyalgia syndrome don't look sick; standard tests for injury or chemical imbalances often show nothing wrong. But if you suffer from fibromyalgia, you know that your disease is real, and so is your pain. It's natural to feel discouraged--but don't give up In Fibromyalgia: Simple Relief through Movement, Stacie L. Bigelow--a motivational health counselor and FMS sufferer herself--gives hope to everyone with fibromyalgia with a simple program designed to help you benefit from the one thing that is known to help: movement.
"The most important key to managing muscles affected by fibromyalgia," writes Bigelow, "is to keep them moving." Drawing on new medical understanding of fibromyalgia as well as her patients' and her own experiences, she explains what the disease is and how to implement an effective plan. She shows you:
* Why traditional exercise programs are not for you
* Which activities will reduce your pain--and which might increase it
* How to balance your daily needs for healing rest and movement
* How (and whether) to use muscle conditioning to decrease pain
* How to stretch properly to reduce pain
* How to communicate your needs to family members, coworkers, and health care providers

Presenting clear and specific advice on how to use movement safely and effectively to ease the pain of fibromyalgia, this caring, knowledgeable guide will give you an optimistic new mind-set about your pain, your body, and your future.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nothing I don't know about already.  Sep 23, 2005
This book was not helpful at all to me. I basically have a good working knowledge about fibromyalgia and this book offered no new helpful advice; in fact, it seems to be very outdated. The author basically speaks about her own actual experience. I would try another book rather than this one, probably a book written in 2005.
Simple Relief is just that, simple  Mar 19, 2003
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about a year and a half ago and have read everything I can get my hands on. With as debilitating as this syndrome is, I refuse to let it stop me and after almost a year of medication decided that I dont want to spend the rest of my life medicated. So, I have opted to treat my FMS by eating healthy, exercising and other alternative treatments (like acupunture). I bought this book thinking it would provide me with some additional guidances about exercise and movement. For me, the book was too simple. I already know everything it suggests. However, I do think that it could be something positive for those who are not moving or for loved ones of FMS sufferers, like my boyfriend who found the book quite informative.
The Best!  Jul 5, 2002
I was concerned based on the review below that this book would disappoint me, but every concern vanished after reading it. Ms. Bigelow is motivating about movement, but does advocate rest. She does describe FMS as a neuro-endocrine suggestion and there are photographs of stretches, along with very specific exercise recommendations. A trustworthy, useful, refreshing reference!
perpetuating the myth  Jun 10, 2002
This book is one of the worst "self-help" books I have ever read concerning fibromyalgia. I was very dissapointed, hoping to find desciptions of specific exercises and stretches that would help ease the pain of fibromyalgia. Instead I find a book that perpetuates the myth that all fibromyalgia sufferers are simply lazy. This book suggests that all of us in pain need only to get off our lazy rear-ends, take our antidepressants, and that will cure us. It is a dangerously simplistic book that advises that the best perscription for fibro patients is to stay on your feet all day, on the move, and take your Dr.s prescribed antidepressants to help you sleep at night. The obsesrvations in this book are incredably shallow and simple-minded, comparing muscles to cement that will become set and hard if they sit still too long, and completely ignoring the new research that descibes fibromyalgia as a neurohormonal disorder, an exaggerated response of the CNS. I feel very sorry for people with fibromyalgia who actually believe this nonsense, try their best to follow the instructions and then feel inadequate when they don't experience the desired results. DON'T BUY THIS BOOK! Instead get:"Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome: A Survival Manual" By Devin Starlanyl, M.D. and Mary Ellen Copeland, M.S.,M.A., and "Alternative Treatments for Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" by Mari Skelly and Andrea Holm. These books will give you information that is useful and pertinant. Thanks to the folks at this site for making this information exchange possible. Good luck to all of you people in pain, I hope you find something to help!
I was so glad to find this book!  May 14, 2001
After being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and then told I wasn't allowed to exercise, my body has become stiff and its even hard to bend over to pick something off the floor. I'm excited to see how this will help me - each of the stretches focuses on areas that are specifically difficult to move after the pain has set in.
