SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT FIBROMYALGIA…

In the past it has been called ‘Rheumatism’ and ‘Fibrositis’.

It is now firmly established that a a central nervous system (CNS) dysfunction is primarily responsible for the increased pain and sensitivity of Fibromyalgia.

The tendency to develop Fibromyalgia Syndrome may be inherited. Many mother’s with Fibromyalgia have children with it as well.

It is the central nervous system that is disturbed.

You cannot have Fibromyalgia only in your back or in your hands. You either have it all over or you don’t have it at all.

Fibromyalgia is not a diagnosis of exclusivity. You may have co existing conditions, such as MS, arthritis, and/or myofascial pain, and still have Fibromyalgia pain.

It is not a disease but a syndrome, which means a specific set of signs and symptoms that occur together. Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and many other serious conditions are also classified as syndromes.

Fibromyalgia is not the same as chronic myofascial pain, there is no such a thing as a Fibromyalgia trigger point. Trigger points are part of myofascial pain and not Fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is not the same as Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome.

Fibromyalgia is not just widespread pain or achy muscles.

Fibromyalgia is not an autoimmune condition.

Fibromyalgia can often be triggered of by an event that activates biochemical changes, causing a cascade of symptoms.
