Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue all over the body. According to doctors, it is considered to be a psychological disorder.
But now researchers have discovered that the pain actually comes from the blood vessels in the hands.
Also, people with fibromyalgia may have experience other symptoms, such as:
- Numbness in hands and feet
- Trouble sleeping
- Morning Stiffness
- Painful menstrual periods
- Problems with memory

According to a neuroscientist, Dr. Frank L. Rice, science thought that these nerves endings were involved in the regulation of blood flow. Though, the research showed that they can also contribute to the conscious sense of touch.
“This poorly managed blood flow can be the source of discomfort and muscle aches and a sense of fatigue, presumably due to an accumulation of lactic acid and low levels of inflammation in patients with fibromyalgia. This, in turn, can contribute to hyperactivity in the brain,” he says.
The current treatment for this condition did not bring comfort to a great number of patient. The common therapies are narcotic analgesic, anticonvulsants and antidepressants as well as simple tips such as sleeping more and exercising regularly. The good thing about this discovery is that it could lead to a new treatment, bringing relief to everyone who suffer from this disease.
