Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Other Invisible Illnesses: The Comprehensive Guide

Posted by nliakos on June 15, 2012

by Katrina Berne (Hunter House, 2002)

Probably a bit out of date by 2012.  This is indeed comprehensive and at times quite technical (as with the drug lists, the chapter “Psychoneuroimmunology: and others).  There’s quite a bit of repetition, and as CFS and FM do overlap a lot–in fact, many people think they are different faces of one illness–the reader sometimes has the impression of reading the same thing over and over. Sometimes there was just too much information to take in. I was taking notes, but I became overwhelmed and just kind of gave up toward the end. This is a good book to own and use as a reference. As a library book that you read and then return, not so useful.
