Fibromyalgia

Study participants who drank moderate amounts of alcohol each week experienced decreased chronic pain prevalence and lower levels of disability compared to non-drinkers.
Study results show that patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia often discontinue treatment. Those that do not frequently augment their initial treatment regimen with one or more additional medications, including some that are not recommended by current guidelines.
Recent studies looking at neural response in patients with fibromyalgia have shown that people with this condition may have hypersensitivity to non-painful stimuli.
Although many fibromyalgia patients complain of chronic pain throughout their bodies, treatment has been difficult. However, in a new study, lidocaine injected into peripheral tissues reduced pain sensitivity.
