FIBROMYALGIA: Self-help is as good as drugs

A simple self-help programme can do as much for fibromylagia patients as standard medical care.


One study tracked the progress of 84 sufferers, half of whom had the usual medication, while the rest went on a self-help programme of swimming, simple exercise, relaxation and simple dietary changes.


The self-help group said they were less fatigued, depressed or anxious, and had greater vitality, whereas the group under medical care reported no improvement in their condition.
