Hope for new answers for people with Fibromyalgia

New study discovers people with Fibromyalgia may have extremely excessive amounts of  nerve fibers of veins called arteriole-venule shunts that now they understand to have a role in pain.  To see the article go to: Guardian Article: Fibromyalgia Mystery finally solved

Pain is a symptom–we who live with it have to tell others what we are feeling.  We may have some objective signs that practitioners, friends and family can see such as flinching, moving slowly, etc.  This new study gives another thing that we can see and ultimately treat!

Here is a quote from that article:  “To solve the Fibromyalgia mystery, researchers zeroed in on the skin from the hand of one patient who had a lack of the sensory nerve fibers, causing a reduced reaction to pain. They then took skin samples from the hands of Fibromyalgia patients and were surprised to find an extremely excessive amount of a particular type of nerve fiber called arteriole-venule (AV) shunts.

Up until this point scientists had thought that these fibers were only responsible for regulating blood flow, and did not play any role in pain sensation, but now they’ve discovered that there is a direct link between these nerves and the widespread body pain that Fibromyalgia sufferers feel.”

To truly heal an illness, it is important to understand the underlying cause(s).  Because of Fibromyalgia’s history as a syndrome, I am not sure that science has discovered underlying cause(s) like they have with a disease like Diabetes.  It may turn out that there are multiple diseases that are now classified as Fibromyalgia.  Either way this is good news!  Knowing that there is a structural or functional aspect that causes the pain will go along way to finding better ways to manage or cure!

      Thank you for posting! I believe that pain can be a message–sometimes literally from the body–something is wrong. Or it can be a message about life style choices. Mindfulness is a great part of step one. I would love to work with you so you can thrive!

    Hi Stacey,My partner doesn’t have choinrc pain but I still know what you mean about housework. You partner could be lazy or wallowing in self pity but there are other possible reasons for his disinterest in housework. Maybe he just doesn’t care about the dirt on the floor etc I think we (women) often feel like if the house looks bad it reflect on us, so we get embarrassed and try to keep the place clean this can become a compulsion with choinrc pain we are so used to pushing ourselves that we often can’t see what is reasonable activity for us. Also its normal in any relationship for people to fall into roles females (even feminists like me) often manage’ the house even when they have bigger things to worry about. Here are a few things to consider the trouble with housework is its never ever finished, so instead of trying to do everything make a list of whats essential (laundry, dishes, making dinner, etc) and take turns doing those things. Other things like tidying, floor cleaning etc can be done less often, perhaps once a month and you each only do one room not the whole house. Also try to leave the house when you find yourself doing too much go for a 10 minute walk it will be far more mentally emotionally and physically healing than a scrubbed and polished bathroom. A couple of weeks after I stopped taking such an active role in housework my partner stepped up to the work its still not as clean as i would like but it no longer bothers me enough for me to go on a cleaning spree. This is part of pain management called pacing’ only do things at a pace that wont cause a flare up (little and often is better than a big clean in one go)If people who visit judge 2 people with CP on the cleanliness of their house then they clearly havent a clue what your going through.Remember : Dull women have immaculate homes and your body needs your love. Treat it well and it will reward you with less flare ups, less pain and more energy.X love and best of luck to you

    I think everything published made a lot of sense.

    However, consider this, suppose you composed a catchier title?
    I am not saying your content isn’t good., however what if you added something that grabbed
    a person’s attention? I mean Hope for new answers for people with Fibromyalgia is
    a little vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note
    how they create article headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
