Chronic Lyme Disease Summit 2

The famous fibromyalgia guys

On my Yahoo group, justme is also a member, and we got talking about the "pioneers" of fibromyalgia research and treatment (Yunus, Teitelbaum, Goldenberg, Wallace and Clauw). Figured I'd share the info here as well:

Muhammed Yunus is at University of Illinois. Funny enough, he got his training about 20 minutes from where I live at UMass in Worcester. (Worcester is the largest city near me, I live out in the woods lol).Here's a link to an interview w/Yunus:

Teitelbaum is in Annapolis, MD (I think he's a bit of a quack, but that's just my opinion). He wrote the famous book "From Fatigued to Fantastic!" He created "Fibro & Fatigue Centers" and there are about a dozen of them across the country. I don't particularly care for their methods, which focus on large doses of antibiotics and hormones, injected once a week at their office. There's probably a F&F Center in Illinois, I would imagine.

Don L. Goldenberg wrote the book "Fibromyalgia, A Leading Experts Guide to Understanding and Getting Relief from the Pain That Won't Go Away". He is based at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Mass, and is a professor at Tufts University.

Daniel Wallace wrote the book "Fibromyalgia, An Essential Guide for Patients and Their Families". He is Chief of Rheumatology at Cedars Sinai Med Ctr in Los Angeles. Also professor at Univ of CA, LA.

Daniel Clauw is a professor of rheumatology at Univ of Michigan. Here's a link about him:

And here is a really good interview with him:

Clauw is the main one who is very vocal about not using tender points for diagnosis.

If you Google any of these guys' names, you'll come up with hundreds of web sites where they are mentioned.
