Educational Documentary 'Fibromyalgia: Fitting the Pieces Together' Wins 2009 Telly Award for Excellence

www.ProHealth.com • September 16, 2009


The educational 90-minute DVD documentary “Fibromyalgia: Fitting the Pieces Together” has won a 2009 Telly Award for Excellence in the Film/Video Health Wellness Category.

The film was produced by Physical Medicine/Rehab specialist Martin Tamler, MD, and Sharon Ostalecki, PhD, a nutritionist, FM author/educator, and founder of HOPE (Helping Our Pain and Exhaustion Inc. – http://hffcf.org), a nonprofit FM education and patient support organization.

“Fibromyalgia: Fitting the Pieces Together” features 13 science-based presentations by leading FM experts, and incorporates patient and family accounts of how they learned to survive and cope with their illness. It is intended as a tool for patients, healthcare providers, families, support groups, and educators.

“Fibromyalgia: Fitting the Pieces Together” opens with explanations of fibromyalgia as a “global condition” (Dr. Ananias Diokno, MD) and as a disorder of central nervous system pain processing (Dr. Daniel Clauw, MD). Other presentations address management of each major “piece” of FM – from diagnosis, pain, sleep and medications to physical therapy and emotional coping.

To read more and preview the documentary, go to http://hffcf.org/Fdoc.php. The price is $29.95 plus S&H in the US and Canada, with different arrangements for multiple or international orders. For information about CME credit associated with the documentary, contact Dr. Sharon Ostalecki at smo23915@aol.com.

Note: Drs. Tamler and Ostalecki have also published a new book –
100 Questions & Answers About Fibromyalgia. The Michigan-based educators will be signing their book at a Pain Awareness Conference to be held Wed evening, Sep 30 in Royal Oak Michigan.

I just saw the documentary. I enjoyed seeing some of the faces we often read of in the literature. I also applaud the producers for trying to advance understanding of our disabling condition. However, I am saddened to see so much emphasis of the condition as a muscular disorder. It seems to me to be entirely a neurological condition, likely both of the brain and the periphery. In my view, the skin is the major peripheral culprit. What we perceive to be muscular pain is really skin pain. Any twitches, spasms, etc. are merely a side effect of the noxious stimulus from the overlying skin. Further, one can have tenderness, soreness over areas where there is clearly no muscle. As long as we hold to the old view of the syndrome as muscular, I fear progress will be slowed.
