Is The Brain Causing The Small Fiber Neuropathy In Fibromyalgia (And ME/CFS ?)




By Cort Johnson in Health Rising.


It seemed ever so clear. The reduction in the number of small nerves in the skin and eyes of roughly forty percent or so of the people with fibromyalgia (FM)

and chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) must bring the body – as opposed to the brain – into play. How could nerve damage in the body, after all, be explained by central sensitization in the brain?  Something separate must be going on in the body.


The only problem with that notion is that, thus far, researchers have been unable to track down that something. Given the small nerve “burnout” found, the immune system was immediately fingered, but immune studies, including a recent study that looked for anautoimmune cause, have been unrewarding.
