Fibromyalgia used to be a musculoskeletal condition. However, it is being recognized more and more as a central nervous system condition. In particular, pain processing takes place differently than it does for some without fibromyalgia. As a result, researchers are reexamining the way doctors should care for the pain of fibromyalgia.

These powerful drugs affect the central nervous system in ways that could actually contribute to further fibromyalgia issues. There is [...]
