Mayo Clinic states, “Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.” (Mayo Clinic Staff, 2021)
The amplification of pain from Fibro is believed to be due to over facilitation of the nerves in one’s body. Think of ones nervous ganglia much like security guards that have seen so much war, that they sound the alarm if they see so much as a cat walk by. Instead of resting at -95 millivolts the nerves in fibromyalgia can rest as high a -60 millivolts, requiring very little stimuli to send a strong pain signal. This amplification is not limited to the muscular nerves and all stimuli, including light and sound may also develop sensitivities. People with fibromyalgia may also be prone to amplify harsh thoughts and feelings against themselves, especially when their hope of betterment appears bleak.
Although many Doctors still debate the cause of fibromyalgia, or even if they believe it’s symptoms are worthy of a name, the author has noticed it to include a dramatization of a healthy persons’ pain-spasm-pain cycle. According to his studies with The Sweedish Institute and abroad, this cycle is begun when an average person gains a trigger point, the brain is usually uncertain as to the cause and will generally tighten the area a little to restrict potential blood loss and potentially increase inflammation in the hopes of helping it heal, the tighter muscles then become more predisposed to further trigger points which result in slightly tighter muscles and increased amounts of inflammation. In a healthy person their trigger points tend to heal faster than new ones form, but with Fibromyalgia, formation of new trigger points seem to be increased while their healing is greatly reduced. Thus, the author feels that ‘Fibromyalgia’ is something we all have to a degree but it’s when the nerves become over facilitated and the patient presents with a large range of painful trigger points that we call it fibromyalgia.
This is similar with candida, cancer and many other pathologies where we al have traces of them but don’ call it a pathology until it meets a diagnosis threshold.
In extreme stages of this pathology at a chronic lvl 8+ pain with meds, spinal disintegration (spondylitis), rib subluxation, injury and paralysis by pain become more and more likely.
