Dr. Vijay discusses causes and treatment of Fibromyalgia. People that are genetically predisposed to develop fibromyalgia are believed to have more sensitive pain receptors and a lower pain threshold. A fibromyalgia sufferer’s body is designed in such a way that once they experience severe pain it can create a “vicious cycle” of pain allowing even less stimuli to create the pain. There is nor cure for fibromyalgia but maintaining a healthy lifestyle and avoiding known triggers can lessen the symptoms of this chronic condition.
