A Complex Condition

Fibromyalgia is a Neurosensory Disorder characterised by widespread muscles pain, joint stiffness and fatigue, to name but a few of the 200+ symptoms. Although not a progressive one, FMS is a Chronic Condition that can consist of multiple flares back to back that can feel like you are getting worse.

Many researchers believe that repeated nerve stimulation causes the brain and spinal cord of people with fibromyalgia to change. This change involves an abnormal increase in levels of certain chemicals in the brain that signal pain, the inflammation in the brain causes the nervous system to overload thus creating various levels of widespread pain.

In addition, the brain’s pain receptors seem to develop a sort of memory of the pain and become sensitized, meaning they can overreact to painful and nonpainful signals.

Trauma, Genetics or stress can trigger Fibromyalgia symptoms, getting treatment and diagnosed is a very long road. I will discuss ways to help in a blog.

SYMPTOMS

>WIDESPREAD PAIN (for diagnosis they call these the Trigger Points)

Myofascial trigger points, also known as trigger points, are described as hyperirritable spots in the skeletal muscle.

No amount of sleep or rest eases chronic fatigue, The level of fatigue can interfere so severely on your daily life, as it can cause chronic insomnia, cognitive problems and a drastic change to the individuals life.
