Patient discussion about neuraxis

Q. Fibromyalgia deeply affect the CNS? Do fibromyalgia deeply affect the CNS (central nervous system)?

A. Fibromyalgia is somewhat related to central nervous system. Fibromyalgia can ultimately disrupt the flow of neurotransmitters between the body and the brain. As a result, fibromyalgia can cause the patient to feel continuous pain, and create chronic muscle spasms. In addition, fibromyalgia patients are often subject to abnormally light a sleeping pattern which prevents the normal production of serotonin and growth hormone normally produced during stage 4 (deep) sleep. This inhibits the body’s ability to heal itself, and may contribute to the overwhelming fatigue and depression experienced by those with FMS.

Q. Is fibromyalgia related to Central Nervous System? Is fibromyalgia related to Central Nervous System? Among men and women who is more prone to the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

A. here is a quote from the National Fibromyalgia Association site:

"Little research has been conducted that measures the prevalence of fibromyalgia, and estimates vary widely as to the proportion of male versus female patients. A 1999 epidemiology study conducted in London found a female to male ratio of roughly three to one. However, a 2001 review of the research literature in Current Rheumatology Reports stated the ratio was nine to one."
