Hi M,

I have had a lot of books over the years about fibro, many of which have gone walkabout

(Not returned from being loaned 👀 )

The three I have to hand are

The First Year Fibromyalgia by Claudia Craig Marek, I did find this useful when I first got my "proper" diagnosis

Living with Fibromyalgia by Christine Craggs-Hinton

Fibromalgia and Muscle pain by Leon Chaitow, some of which I found useful, some bits not so much.

I have both Leon Chaitow & Christine Craggs-Hinton too, she sadly passed away last year in her 60's I believe. I have many others too! :) Books with 'legs' I think we all have had them ! :D He Hee!

I wonder if people may comment on their local libraries & whether they had any informative books on Fibro or are resources poor?

Emma :)


Certainly in my local library they are virtually non existent, but there again the library itself is very sadly under threat of closure😡

Hi Emma and All! :)

My favorite FM reference book is:

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain: A Survival Manual,

written by Devin Starlanyl and Mary Ellen Copeland.

This book maps out Myofascial Trigger Points and much more.

I have had several M.D.s and "body workers" borrow this book. Many had eventually purchased their own copy for reference. :)

Happy World Book Day!



Thank you Emma, I shall have a perusal and see what they have?

Take care

Hi emma, i too have a christine craggs-hinton, had not realised she had passed away, sad she was not old. At moment i am (very slowly) reading thomas cromwell by tracy borman, it is very interesting but i have to keep going over same bits again and again as short term memory is appalling. It does help that wolfhall has been on tv recently ! I have gathered quite a library of my own over the years and do find myself reading old books that it takes me 3/4 of the way through to realise i have read it before ! Am thinking of experimenting with talking books.
