In the eyes of a person with fibromyalgia syndrome, their pain
and other symptoms are real. By the time a patient seeks
medical care for fibromyalgia, they will have probably endured
criticism and misunderstandings about the invisible nature of
their symptoms. Patients are genuinely disturbed that their
bodies are not performing up to par, while at the same time,
their family, friends and employers are placing demands on
them that can't be met. No one would want to be placed in such
a frustrating and painful predicament, so naturally this
situation becomes the driving force for fibromyalgia patients
who are seeking medical advice. Unfortunately, lack of
understanding about the neurophysiology of chronic pain
syndromes and the advent of evidence-based medicine leads to
restricted care for patients who really need a physician's
help.

The best prescription for aiding people with
fibromyalgia undoubtedly includes a physician with an open
mind on treatment options.
