What to fix?: The problem seems to be faulty signalling from the muscles and organs back to the brain. Pain signals that are sent are not necessarily sent in response to an actual painful stimulus. Many factors - stress, immune system, hormones, mood - all seem to affect the pain signals in FMS patients. Since we don't understand how all this happens yet we don't know exactly what to fix yet! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
