To the editor:

Littlejohn and Guymer1attempt to reestablish the nexus between injury and the fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Their editorial recommends that“the most important thing is to get the diagnosis right”. However, their suggestion that the diagnosis of whiplash is an “emotionally charged” term holds no credibility if they suggest that “fibromyalgia” should be preferred.
