Arthroblog No 5 - Fibromyalgia

Vanessa Watson
Fibromyalgia iterally means “pain in the muscles and fibrous tissues”. In centuries past, it was embraced by muscular rheumatism, neurasthenia (“nervous exhaustion”) and fibrositis (Shakespeare’s “foul rheumatic breed”). After puzzling over 20 years of circular arguments from North American rheumatology, sufferers can now be told that their pain and other baffling symptoms (fatigue, sleep disturbance, mood changes etc.) closely resemble those seen in all sick or injured animals. This recently developed stress response hypothesis has major implications for treatment.
