Several factors are known to cause fibromyalgia. This article examines the three major causes of the disease.
Find Out The Nitty Gritty On Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia is a relatively common ailment, and it is commonly classified as a central nervous system disorder. This is a painful condition, something that has been subjected to intensive and extensive study and research throughout the years in a bid to understand its causes. But all that work is not for nothing, since the authorities in the medical community have been able to understand what causes this disease. In that context, we are referring to both the so-called 'underlying causes' and the 'triggers'. Management of this condition is definitely facilitated if we understood more about it and what causes it. There are a lot of causes of this disease, but we will only be tackling the three major ones right now. We refer to these as the diseases 'three major causes' because, going by the available data, these seem to be behind most incidences of the condition. Fibromyalgia is often largely brought on by stress. Many instances of fibromyalgia episodes are spurred on and stirred by stress. In many cases, even childhood stress is blamed for this type of condition happening. Take note that people are vulnerable to this disease if they are also suffering from various states of depression. If you compare children who had a depressing and problematic childhood to children who were stress-free, the former are actually much, much happier. Hormonal imbalance and changes in the brain's biochemistry also cause fibromyalgia. To be more specific, imbalance in one's growth hormone's is pinpointed to be the cause. However, some medical experts agree that it is the other way around: growth hormone deficiency is a result of the condition known as fibromyalgia. Serotonin and dopamine are the two most blamed culprits if the cause of the condition has something to do with the brain's biochemistry. Fibromyalgia takes place if too little serotonin is found in the brain. Fibromyalgia also exists if the brain does not have enough hypodopaminergia, which is another name for dopamine. Too much stress would cause these neurotransmitters to have abnormalities when it comes to their amounts in the brain. But there is always the challenge of figuring out whether it is neurotransmitter abnormality that is causing the stress, or whether the stress is causing the neurotransmitter abnormality. We only know for sure that patients with fibromyalgia almost always suffer from these abnormalities in their neurotransmitters. What is also known is the fact that these patients do often (but not always) benefit from the use of medications that rectify the said neurotransmitter abnormalities. Fibromyalgia is also known to be caused by the lack of sleep. There have been many studies that support this theory correlating sleep and the disease. We have discussed earlier about how stress and neurotransmitter abnormalities cause fibromyalgia. In a way, the principle is the same with poor sleep. However, there are also certain cases where lack of sleep alone can lead to this disease. Recommended Link: Fibromyalgia Alternative Treatment
