I've read a book called "Betrayal by the Brain" by Jay A. Goldstein, MD, who has a theory about fibromyalgia being caused by dysfunction in the processing of stimuli by the brain. He has about 30 different meds he tries, which he reports helping patients (he uses a med trial protocol to determine what helps each patient, since the science isn't yet up to determining on the basis of symptoms what will help a particular person). I am going to see him soon, and will report on my results (success, I hope!) here.

> Other than the rehashed treatment of antidepressants and pain pills, has anyone heard of any really reliable alternatives other than glucosamine which is a great help by the way though not a cure.
