When looking for research articles, it can be helpful to search other conditions you are researching and fibromyalgia to see if they are related. If you are specifically concerned about the treatment, it can be helpful to search that specific treatment.  Check with your local library if the articles you need aren't free.  Google Scholar is helpful and has a lot of free resources.​
