Complex adaptive systems allostasis in fibromyalgia - Source: Rheumatic Diseases Clinics of North America, May 2009

  [ 19 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By M Martinez-Lavin, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • August 8, 2009


Fibromyalgia (FM) can be conceptualized as a failed attempt of our main complex adaptive system (the autonomic nervous system) to adjust to a hostile environment.

FM cannot be fully understood through the prevailing linear-reductionist medical model. Conversely, FM can be explained using the new complexity theory paradigms. Relentless sympathetic hyperactivity in FM may be a sign of allostasis. [Body’s attempt to maintain stability in face of stressors.]

Similarly sympathetic hyporeactivity to stress may indicate allostatic load. Dorsal root ganglia have been suggested as important sympathetic-nociceptive short-circuit sites.

Autonomic dysfunction also explains non-pain-related FM features. Preliminary genetic evidence supports FM's dysautonomic nature.

A scientific holistic therapy is proposed to harmonize rigid complex systems and, in doing so, to help to improve FM symptoms.
