If the researchers are studying comorbid disorders, why are they not also considering hypothyroidism, bladder and bowel dysfunction, myofascial pain syndrome, lupus (SLE), ankylosing spondylitis, Raynaud’s, etc.? Many fibromyalgia patients have no history of mental health disparities. So why does Dr. Hauser, and those who associate with him, keep wasting valuable research money on such ill fated endeavors?
See Fibromyalgianess is ALL in Our Head? My Correspondence with Dr Frederick Wolfe here.
Dr Hauser and Dr Wolfe co-authored another survey type study suggesting fibromyalgia meets the DSM-5 (American Psychiatric Assoscition diagnostiic manual) criteria. I am not the only one with concerns. See Huffington Post article, Don't People in Chronic Pain Have Enough to Deal With? here.
