This would be a good one for Dr. P. Maybe he'll pipe in with a response. And Thanks for posting this Pixe5.
Interesting. And it does make sense that the reason we are not like other pain sufferers in that fibro patients receptors don't let the meds bind and help us. Fibro messes us up every which a way.
As interesting as this was I shuttered when I saw this research was looking for answers in the brain. That takes me back years and years to all the " It's all in your head" statements. Ugrr Doctors were so sure I was making it up that I had to go to a psychiatrist for over a year when 1ST DX'd with fibro because the thinking was it was all in my head. I am not happy when I see any thinking on fibro might go back to that again. Ugh.
Thanks again for posting the link.. Dr. P what do you think about this new research study. I say: " Not enough ladies in the study. They didn't have a wide age group.. young to old and they didn't study it long enough." Just saying.
