fibromyalgia what is it and why isnt there much information on it?

my daughter has been recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia she has had pains for 2 years now most nights. the only treatment for this is anti depressants which is a little extreme for a 3 yr old but it does less damage than panadol, also the only way to diagnose fibromyalgia is by its symptoms. i am interested to know what u think about the whole thing and a little advice would be great.

    FMS (fibromyalgia syndrome) is a widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder for which the cause is still unknown. Fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons – the soft fibrous tissues in the body. Here is a link to the Fibromyalgia Network which is full of wonderful, up to date information.
    and here is a link to a site about women with FMS.
    See if you can find a pedatric rheumatoligist who might be able to find a better treatment. Best wishes to you both.
