Fibromyalgia Resource Booklet

In May, 2008, the Fibromyalgia Support Group of Winnipeg, Inc. sent a copy of the booklet "Fibromyalgia Syndrome: A Clinical Case Definition for Practitioners: An Overview" to all Family Physicians in Manitoba. This booklet provides a concise summary of diagnostic criteria and recommended treatment options for use by health care professionals to treat patients with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). It also provides a number of helpful suggestions and health tracking worksheets for both physicians and patients to utilize. This Overview is a follow-up to the Canadian Consensus Document on the Fibromyalgia Syndrome which was written by an International Expert Consensus Panel selected by Health Canada.

Copies of the document are available for purchase at our regular monthly meetings for a cost of $4.00. Electronic copies of the FMS Consensus Document and the Overview of this document can be obtained online at:
