Research Brief

A new study published in the European Journal of Pain provides further evidence of a genetic component of fibromyalgia. Specifically, researchers linked alternate forms of some specific clusters of genetic material to pain sensitivity in people with fibromyalgia.

So far, it's unknown whether genetic differences such as these are a cause or result of fibromyalgia.
