Loss of muscle tone: My theory is that people who become sedentary and incapacitated lose global muscle tone, which potentiates them to greater expression of musculoskeletal instability leading to widespread chronic muscle spasms and trigger point development. They develop pain to palpation of motor points in spastic muscles. One solution is aquatherapy and regaining of muscle tone. ...Read more

If fibromyalgia is believed to be caused by the central nervous system why can't it be fixed with some kind of surgery?
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 more

4 back surgeries & diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Use 10mg of methadone 2xday for last 15years, so I can work. Gone off for a month 3x. Why the bad rap?

Risk factors include: heart failure, structural heart disease, hypokalemia, long qt syndrome, & family history of sudden cardiac death. Recent dosage increase, high Methadone dose, liver dysfunction, & use of other qt prolonging drugs (eg. Antipsychotics) may incr risk. ...Read more

CONTROVERSIAL: I have found that fibromyalgia is actually a stage 2 manifestation of Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease is a condition with the spirochete Borrelia Burgdorferi, accompanying parasites, coinfections, and biotoxins. Blood testing is inadequate to diagnose the presence of Lyme. Also Borrelia gets passes 100% of the time between significant others. Note that the pain with your Achilles could actually be ...Read more

See yoursurgeon for follow up. ...Read more
