Research suggests that “classic” Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a central pain processing disorder and does not appear to be a peripheral somatic disorder. Rather than be viewed as one grandiose syndrome into which all patients with unexplained widespread pain and/or fatigue are lumped, Fibromyalgia (FMS) like symptoms should result in a comprehensive work-up to properly determine the underlying foundational elements of the patients complaints.
In this webinar Dr Brady will:
• emphasise the concept that “classic” FMS must be clinically differentiated from the various subsets of organic, functional, and musculoskeletal problems
• Outline at least four distinct clinical subsets that exist which often lead to a true or erroneous diagnosis of FMS.
• Discuss an integrated approach to treatment of FMS.
