Fibromyalgia and pain

We know that increased activation of the sympathetic nervous (fight or flight) system is present in fibromyalgia but is it contributing to the pain there? Martinez-Lavin (“When Stress Causes Distress”) has been hypothesizing that it’s been a key pain driver in FM for years. He’s shown that levels of norepinephrine – the neurotransmitter that turns the SNS on – are positively correlated with pain in FM. The higher the NE levels – the higher the pain level.

Take in the good

Today we don't gather our own food, fight off wild animals, or live in caves. And yet, explains Dr. Rick Hanson, we're equipped with stone-aged brains. With practice, however, we can change our brains, and our lives, for the better.
