Tip of the Day

Researchers once believed that something must be wrong with the muscles of FM patients because they seemed to be the origin of so much pain and dysfunction. In fact, FM's former name, "fibrositis," literally meant inflammation of the muscles and soft tissue. However, later studies ultimately found no inflammation or nerve injury. Today, researchers generally concur that FM is a condition which is centrally mediated by the brain and is not a disease of the periphery.
