Get the Help and Support You Need to Cope with Fibromyalgia and Chronic
Fibromyalgia Advocate is an invaluable resource for self-help that
includes information on where and how to locate appropriate medical, legal and financial resources.
Devin Starlanyl has produced a monumental
labor of love with candor and meticulous attention to important
details. Her book provides a timely beacon to guide most people with
musculoskeletal pain problems through a dark, confusing, and frequently
antagonistic array of health care and disability insurance providers into
the daylight of pain relief and respect."

Starlanyl has done it again. She has compiled and distilled current
research and theory about fibromyalgia into a readable book that will
empower everyone who reads it. Reading the appropriate sections in The
Fibromyalgia Advocate will enable those who endure chronic pain to go to
their caregiver (whether physician, chiropractor, physical therapist,
nutritionist or pharmacist) armed with the knowledge to ask pertinent
questions, to insist on consultation when necessary, and to participate
productively in their own treatment. Such people will be much less likely
to be dismissed by practitioners ignorant of the basic facts about
fibromyalgia and musculoskeletal pain. For these reasons, this book is a

"All too often,
those imprisoned by chronic pain become 'throw-away people' because the key
to their incarceration has been thrown away. Devin Starlanyl's work, as
represented in this book, explores the medical, emotional, legal and
social avenues that will enable such prisoners to unlock their cell doors.
I heartily recommend The Fibromyalgia Advocate to all of my colleagues and
