New Study on Fibromyalgia


In a new article recently published in the Medical Research Archives, Roland Staud worked alongside researchers from Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada to measure how pain is processed differently in people with fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by chronic pain.

The article, “Using Structural Equation Modeling to Investigate the Neural Basis of Altered Pain Processing in Fibromyalgia with Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging” covered the study where researchers used a technique called structural equation modeling along with brain imaging to see how the brains of people with fibromyalgia respond to pain compared to those without the condition.

Fibromyalgia is not as widely understood as other medical conditions. In this study, the findings suggested that altered pain perception experienced by individuals with fibromyalgia may be linked to changes in how different parts of the brain communicate and work together. Another step closer to fully understanding this complex condition!
