Fibromyalgia is a pathology characterised by chronic pain of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and periarticular tissues, often associated with sleep disorders and problems with concentration, anxiety and depression.

This book offers the most up-to-date scientific information regarding the characteristics, causes and possible treatment of fibromyalgia and accompanies readers step by step in a psychological self-help programme that will help them more effectively deal with pain, significantly improving their quality of life.
