Authors link personal experiences with Fibromyalgia in latest issue of magazine
Sunday 22 January 2012
The January/February 2012 issue of Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain LIFE™ magazine is now available in print and digital versions, featuring articles on obesity and exercise by authors with fibromyalgia who have both personal and professional experience with the contentious topics.
In her article, “Testing the Link Between Obesity and Fibromyalgia,” author Jean McMillan, who describes herself as “someone recovering from obesity and suffering from fibromyalgia,” interviews several patients and prominent physicians to discuss recent studies that beg the proverbial chicken-vs.-egg question: does obesity cause fibromyalgia or vice versa?
With exercise also playing a major role in the ongoing obesity and fibromyalgia debate, noted researcher and professor, C. Jessie Jones, PhD, offers her article, “Strategies to Stay Motivated for Exercising in the New Year.” Diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1998, Dr. Jones writes, “My intention for writing this article is to share strategies that worked for me to once again be physically active when it was the last thing I wanted to do in my depressed, painful, and fatigued state after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.”
AVAILABLE in DIGITAL and PRINT-ON-DEMAND
