Is there any promising research being done on fibromyalgia?

Yes. I have examined numerous persons with fibromyalgia, and the unifying finding has been pelvic girdle instability secondary to childbirth, trauma, and/or joint hypermobility syndrome. I first published my methods of evaluation in 2009 in the september issue of practical pain management. I also have placed a booklet on line at my pain board at quora.Com (free).
See below. There is a lot of research being done. Any research increases our understanding of this syndrome.
