Four Books About Fibromyalgia You Should Read

Posted on August 08, 2020

Thousands of members of MyFibroTeam connect with one another and read each other's stories to gain perspective and validation about living with fibromyalgia. Another way to discover how to live better with fibro is through books written by people who have this condition. We combed through member book recommendations and collected a list of the most popular.

1. Reverse Therapy: Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Related Disorders by John Eaton PhD
This radical body-mind healing book has been effective in treating unexplainable conditions such as CFS, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, IBS, and more for an easy and engaging read.

2. Mayo Clinic Guide to Fibromyalgia: Strategies to Take Back Your Life by Andy Abril M.D. and Barbara K. Bruce Ph.D. L.P.
This educational book is a must-read for those living with fibromyalgia—it dispels common myths, offers practical daily advice, and allows readers to return to a healthy and happy life.

3. Married To Fibro: An intimate journey living with and loving those with Fibromyalgia by Tina Marie Birkhoff
What is commonly not spoken about is the pain that caregivers and supporters of those with fibro go through alongside their loved ones. This story by a seasoned expert is a support system and a self-care guide for the rest of us.

4. Healing Fibromyalgia: Why everything hurts and how to feel well again by David Edelberg M.D.
Do you feel like your loved ones either think that your pain is in your head, or that you will never get better? Dr. Edelberg hears you. This is a supportive and informative guide that might actually help you heal your fibromyalgia, despite the voices telling you otherwise.

Check out some book recommendations and favorites from Members of MyFibroTeam:

"A great book to read is 'Healing Fibromyalgia' by David Edelberg MD. He includes a Physician's Guide to Fibromyalgia to give to your doctor."

"Has anyone read and used the cookbook called 'Fibromyalgia Freedom'? I have a question."

"Here's a link for free books for those who like to read. It's from BookBub. I love the site."
