Rakesh Jain, MD, MPH wants mental health professionals to rethink fibromyalgia. Though the disease has historically been characterized only as a pain disorder—and its treatment has focused on relieving only pain symptoms, resulting in mixed outcome results—Dr. Jain says that recent research has shown fibromyalgia to be a “true biopyschosocial disorder,” and that psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety and sleep problems are often precursors for the disease.
