Today’s Tip: FMS may begin with a chronically overactivated stress-cortisol state. Over time, as the system gradually “tires,” a low cortisol response to stress may be produced. In turn, continuing stressors may increase the release of certain cytokines (chemical messengers between cells) that cause pain, fatigue, cognitive impairment, and other problems, while inhibiting the cytokines that promote positive functions such as sleep and tissue repair.
