1550149 tn?1340000730 Graphic from Integrated Tissue Dynamics Graphic and Explanation in Box from Integrated Tissue Dynamics What This Study May Help Explain The information gained in this study could explain why many people with Fibromyalgia have widespread deep tissue pain, “tender points” throughout their bodies, extreme pain in their hands and feet, fatigue, and why cold weather seems to make symptoms worse.
1550149 tn?1340000730 Some experts believe that fibromyalgia does not lead to poor sleeping patterns, but that sleep disturbances come first, precipitating many cases of fibromyalgia pain. In one study, healthy volunteers reported fibromyalgia-like pain after they had been subjected to disrupted deep sleep. Disturbed sleep appears to trigger factors in the immune system that cause inflammation, pain, fatigue, and a decreased pain threshold.

Avatar n tn There is also evidence that genetic factors may play a role in developing fibromyalgia. Yes, the condition appears to run in families.... just why that is no study is yet conclusive. But again research is on-going. There is so much to be learned about the condition but thankfully we have made some major strides in the right direction. While you are always welcome here we do have a forum directed specifically at Fibromyalgia and those that have that have the diagnosis.

Avatar m tn Recently, a randomized controlled study found that increasing vitamin D blood levels from a mean of 19 ng/mL to about 50 ng/mL was associated with a modest decrease in fibromyalgia pain (a 20 point decrease on a 100 point scale). The study involved 30 adults (mostly women) in Austria with fibromyalgia.
1340994 tn?1374193977 So I would say that poor circulation causing hand pain or maybe other causes of hand pain also can lead to body pain. I will say I never had a diagnosis of fibromyalgia because when the areas of pain were counted (back in the 1990s) the number wasn't high enough. So not fibromyalgia, but I had a lot of pain and all these years later, after treating my problems, the pain is gone.
666151 tn?1311114376 The National Pain Foundation has announced that they are seeking participants in a new study about chronic pain. Here is the official notice: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Seeking Study Participants Do you have chronic pain that has lasted for six months or longer?
1336585 tn?1275709112 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.

771990 tn?1341779376 Today was more about the Fibromyalgia pain in my upper back and spasms down my arm. This is the most aggravating pain. Its almost as if it burns. On top of all of that all day is a cold I am trying to come down with and I always worry because of the COPD I have and the asthma. Been taking that strong prescription cough medicine that helps with rest but with everything elese I am taking for pain I hope the mix is ok.

Avatar f tn the migraine marathon seems to be slowing somewhat...so far today I've only had one and it's almost 5pm. That's an improvement. But the body/fibromyalgia pain is bad. My hips and legs and arms and hands and shoulder are killing. It's constant and med resistant. It is also frustrating because I don't really one hundred percent know if the pain is all from fibromyalgia or if possibly something else like the ms I have been examining. I suppose I could have both.
