This website contains educational material on two medical conditions that often occur together although they are different: fibromyalgia(FM) and chronic myofascial pain and dysfunction (CMPD), also called myofascial pain syndrome. These are among the most misdiagnosed of conditions. The information presented is referenced with peer-reviewed medical research and medical texts. Any handout or article may be copied for educational purposes if each is copied intact, including source and copyright. One section of the website is written for patients and lay supporters and is written using terms that are easier to understand. The other section is written for medical professionals. There is also a section with handouts in other languages. Volunteer translators who would like to update and expand, contact the webmaster.
