    With a medical degree (MD), training in two medical specialties, and a further doctoral degree (PhD) in medical research, Kevin White has long been an internationally recognized expert in fibromyalgia treatment and research, having published several groundbreaking studies on chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. He has become a strong fibromyalgia patient advocate, and is a former university Teacher of the Year. Now retired from active practice, he has turned to writing, having already written four novels, nine children's books, a book of inspirational essays, and as a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, over four hundred songs. In his newest book, he returns to his roots in medical practice and research, trying to help millions of fibromyalgia sufferers with a book that, once and for all, should convince everyone that FM is real.
    Fibromyalgia (FM) is a common condition that is associated with oftentimes debilitating chronic widespread pain, severe fatigue, poor sleep, mental fogginess (often called fibro fog) and several other symptoms. It can come on at any age, even during childhood. It affects up to one in ten women and one in sixty men over the course of their lifetime. An estimated 6 million Americans and 600,000 Canadians suffer from this disease, and perhaps 100 million worldwide. However, roughly one in four family doctors and one in eight pain specialists believe that FM patients are faking their symptoms, and that FM doesn't even exist. Critics have called fibromyalgia "the disease with no clothes," "the syndrome of feeling out of sorts," and "a fabrication of the North American court system." Breaking Thru the Fibro Fog is the first and only book of its kind. It examines all the arguments against fibromyalgia, and reviews the published scientific evidence refuting each and every one of them.
