Fibromyalgia May Be A Form Of Neuropathy

Fibromyalgia has become a very difficult problem for many individuals with associated and documented nerve fiber dysfunction.  Due to this dysfunction, significant pain is noted in many suffering from fibromyalgia.  As such, treatment options are often difficult to find and research is wanting.  In fact, many suffer and can't even function in normal activities and often live without treatment options.

These same problems were once common in peripheral neuropathy as well. On a regular basis people are still told that nothing can be done for peripheral neuropathy, but this is no longer the case.  The research is becoming more extensive on peripheral neuropathy, and includes many treatment options. These options, if proper dianosis and treatment is initiated carefully, can improve the overall symptoms and functioning of an individual with peripheral neuropathy.

With this understanding of fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy, a link between the two is very valuable for fibromyalgia.  An interesting new study has found a possible link between peripheral neuropathy (particularly small fiber neuropathy) with fibromyalgia.  New options may be available for fibromyalgia patients also!
