San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) August 30, 2010
A new approach to the understanding of the central nervous system may offer hope for sufferers of a number of debilitating but little-understood conditions, including fibromyalgia, constant fatigue and chronic pain.
According to the Neurologic Relief Centers, many chronic pain conditions may be linked to meningeal compression, believed to be caused by an encroachment or twisting on the three-membrane protective sheath of the spinal cord and brain, called the meninges. This may be caused by accidents, trauma and stress.
Irregular nerve impulses
“Any tugging on the meninges can have devastating effects on this critical and sensitive nerve action, which in turn can produce a galaxy of undesirable symptoms,” says the NRC. Symptoms include those diagnosed as fibromyalgia, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), irritable bowel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, dystonia, restless leg syndrome, depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety and many more.
According to the NRC, the pulling and irritation of these nerve roots may cause nerve fibers to fire irregular impulses to the brain. The brain interprets these fired impulses as pain, itching, burning, coldness, numbness, or other odd feelings. The body, in response to stimuli from irritation, may twitch or spasm, sparking restless leg syndrome, muscle pain and tightness and spasms often experienced by fibromyalgia patients.
Few answers for millions of sufferers
As many as 12 million Americans suffer from fibromyalgia, a little-understood disorder that causes chronic, widespread pain and hypersensitivity to pressure. Its effects also go far beyond pain, to symptoms including fatigue, sleeplessness, difficulty in concentration, bowel and bladder problems and many others. For many, fibromyalgia syndrome can be debilitating.
Researchers estimate that fibromyalgia affects up to 6 percent of the population, with a large number being women.
Medical science does not know what causes the syndrome or how to cure it.
The NRC’s view of the constant stimulation of nerves is consistent with theories about the cause of fibromyalgia described by the Mayo Clinic. “Researchers believe repeated nerve stimulation causes the brains of people with fibromyalgia to change,” increasing the levels of chemicals that signal pain and causing the brain’s pain receptors to become more sensitive, according to the famous clinic’s web site.
