Abstract Fibromyalgia is a common but enigmatic and frustrating disorder, since it tends to produce such nonspecific symptoms as fatigue, chronic widespread pain, and sleep problems. The ill⁻defined nature of this chronic syndrome may lead patients to seek care from multiple providers, often due to misunderstandings and missed diagnoses. In this program, Dr. Berman Demonstrates a focused, hands⁻on approach to diagnosing fibromyalgia that includes a physical exam to identify positive tender points. The 18 tender points, which are shown by Dr. Berman in a patient case study, are sensitive and specific for fibromyalgia in 80% of cases. Once the diagnosis is made, Dr. Berman shows how a combination of medications and exercise can help patients with fibromyalgia reduce their symptoms, function better, and enjoy an improved quality of life.
