“When I was in practice, one thing I heard from my fibromyalgia patients, over and over, was that the pain, though severe, was not the worst thing; nor was the fatigue or headaches or mental cloudiness. The WORST thing for many was their feeling that no one believed their suffering was real. With Breaking thru the Fibro Fog, I hope to end all that uncertainty, and give those with FM the rights and respect that everyone deserves.”
Kevin P. White, M.D., Ph.D.
"God Bless You, Dr. White!"
"BRAVO!!!!!! and there is a lot of clapping going on. For all Fibromyalgia patients, families, physicians, lawyers and researchers, this is a Proverbial Masterpiece. I feel that this book "Breaking Thru the Fibro Fog" is an antidote in itself. BRAVO!"
"Dr White is an excellent advocate for fibromyalgia and to be commended for this excellent, thorough book to help patients with pain and other debilitating symptoms of fibromyalgia."
"This book presents, in a clear, and comprehensive fashion, the contemporary scientific evidence on fibromyalgia . It will be of great service to patients and their health care providers; it should become “must reading” for interested third parties, such as insurers, who often need much help in understanding what fibromyalgia is."
"If you have been belittled and ridiculed by family, friends, physicians, employers or attorneys who do not believe your fibromyalgia symptoms are real, this book is for you. Kevin P. White, M.D., Ph.D. restores the credibility and image of fibromyalgia by using scientific logic and examples of other well-known medical conditions to prove that you have a serious, life-impacting disease. White draws on his experience as a researcher in the field and treating physician to give you the ammunition you need to defend yourself against hurtful comments. Everything he states is backed by research. He offers tactful ways to get others to understand your symptoms and respect your physical limitations."
"This insightful book is a valuable tool for lawyers who are prosecuting personal injury actions and long-term disability claims based on a condition that remains poorly understood by both the bench and bar. The detailed index and glossary make it a useful resource to bring right into the courtroom."
"Great strides have been made in the science of fibromyalgia during the past two decades, yet a great many people, both lay and medical, still fail to understand the breadth and significance of discoveries made. With his own impressive track record in FM research, Kevin White, M.D., Ph.D., is uniquely qualified to make an articulate and authoritative case for the legitimacy of FM. White's new book, Breaking Thru the Fibro Fog, is a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in fibromyalgia."
"I LOVED THE BOOK. It is long overdue. Dr. White's dedication and concern for the FM community show in EACH and EVERY word he writes."
"If you have ever been told by a doctor, friend, or family member that FM does not exist and that your symptoms are not real, then this is the book for you. It is one of the best books I have ever read on fibromyalgia, written by one of the most qualified doctors in the field.
The book is expertly written with superb examples and analogies to explain complex scientific points, making the text user friendly and fully accessible to anyone with no medical knowledge. He tackles all the arguments that critics throw at fibromyalgia and all his statements are well supported by scientific research. It brings together the wealth of knowledge we now have about FM and moulds it into a strong argument to legitimise what FM patients around the world have been saying for years. Fibromyalgia is real!
With this book on your shelf you will have the ammunition to defend yourself against any onslaught from any person who says FM does not exist. It will certainly be taking up a space on my bookshelf."
"A very well-written user-friendly book that effectively refutes the anti-fibromyalgia critics and gives much needed legitimacy to these long-suffering patients."
"Who should, or will read this book? Clearly, patients with fibromyalgia will wish to read it; but others on that list might include those who argue against the validity of this condition, family members who now perceive unexpected cracks in their shields, employers faced with an illness which they fear could affect the bottom line, politicians who are recognizing an illness that affects a large proportion of their constituents, lawyers on either side of controversial issues, and judges required to weigh the arguments in order to make decisions which fairly meet the dictates of law.
It is yet to be seen how history will view this book, but the first step in that process is for history to read its pages and digest its thoughts."
