I got into an argument with a cousin that said "if you just get up and move your supposed symptoms will go away." She doesn't believe in it and even if she reads evidence to the contrary she'll never admit it. Thank goodness for the rest of my family. You can't get around it. There will always be some people that just don't get it.
I told her I'd be writing about her and giving her a couple of facts that she could research.
I hope she reads it.
Research is pointing to evidence that Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue syndromes involve the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.
It has been found that:
1. The autonomic nervous system is not functioning properly. 2. There are alterations in the pain related chemical transmitters in the spinal fluid. 3. Blood flow and metabolic processes in the brain are not functioning properly.
Substance P (a chemical in the cerebrospinal fluid) which transmits pain impulses to the brain is three times higher in people with Fibromyalgia that in the control group.
