OXFORD RHEUMATOLOGY LIBRARY Fibromyalgia Syndrome 2nd Edition eBook Free Download Since the first edition of this book, fibromyalgia syndrome has become increasingly recognized
and diagnosed. Unfortunately, there is still a significant delay in patients getting a diagnosis.

Many countries have recognized the healthcare burden of fibromyalgia and have published guidelines and recommendations on diagnosis and management.

The Canadian guidelines emphasized that the diagnosis could be made in primary care and the importance of empowering patients to manage this chronic illness. To assist this, there are new diagnostic criteria that  could be applied in primary care to aid recognition and diagnosis.

Fibromyalgia syndrome is characterized by chronic widespread pain. It is common, affecting 2%  of the population. The prevalence has increased dramatically since 990. The condition is not  new but has been known by various names such as fibrositis or myofascial pain syndrome, until  990 when the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) published new classification criteria  and first used the term fibromyalgia. The absence of an objective diagnostic test and overlap  with other conditions often lead to significant delay in diagnosis. There is a general concern  by medical professionals that fibromyalgia is an ill-defined, polysymptomatic condition. The diagnosis of fibromyalgia may create an illness and increase greatly healthcare cost. However,
research has found evidence of the opposite. The diagnosis of fibromyalgia improved patient satisfaction and reduced healthcare utilization through decreased referral to other specialists
and medical investigations. Hence, prompt diagnosis is beneficial to patients, doctors, and healthcare providers.
The purpose of this short book is to provide a succinct and practical guide to help general practitioners and rheumatologists to diagnose and manage patients with fibromyalgia.

This  book will provide the reader with an essential understanding of the pathophysiology of pain in ix
fibromyalgia, different subtypes of fibromyalgia, and pitfalls in the diagnosis and management  of this chronic condition.
